Featured Speaker: Thomas Stein, Computer Systems Manager and NASA Planetary Data System Geosciences Node Operations Manager, Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences and the McDonnell Center for the Space Sciences, Washington University in St. Louis

NASA’s Mars rover science teams make decisions every day about where to go and what observations to make. Mission notebooks capture daily reports to add context to the vast data archive curated at Washington University in St. Louis and partner Planetary Data System facilities. The notebooks are used by students and scientists, and they are freely available to all. Washington University manages the “geosciences node” of NASA’s Planetary Data System (PDS) and works directly with NASA missions to help them generate data archives related to geology, geophysics, surface properties, and tectonics of planets.

The NASA Connection is a special partnership series of The Academy of Science - St. Louis and the NASA SOLAR SYSTEM AMBASSADORS - Southern Illinois.
