Dr. Claudia Alexander, U.S. Rosetta Project Scientist, will present:
International Cooperation with the Rosetta Mission: Like a Down-Home Family Dinner
With the Rosetta Mission, announced in 1995 and launched in 2004, the European Space Agency (ESA) realized the culmination of decades of effort seeking to understand the primordial material that formed our solar system. Along the way, ESA courted the participation of NASA, and embarked upon a challenging proposition – to land a spacecraft on a comet. Come along on the journey, as Claudia presents some of the enormous challenges of the Rosetta Mission, and how the relationships with NASA served the mission as a whole over three decades.
