Industry Lunch: Keynote Speech by James H. Crocker (Upon Invitation)
Early astronomers first peered at Mars through telescopes. Inaugural fly-bys of the Red Planet dubbed it a “dead world.” Mars was a mystery until the Viking missions, which revealed a few of the planet’s hidden gems. Today Mars is at the epicenter of how the world will continue our legacy of human spaceflight. A look back informs a look forward into the Red Planet.
