Subject: [NBLUG/talk] NASA engineer to speak at SRJC on Modeling and
 Simulation on the way to Mars
To: talk@nblug.org

   There is a talk on Modeling and Engineering by a NASA engineer this Friday
   night, April 1st, 7pm at SRJC Newman Auditorium (Emeritus Hall). A The
   talk is free, parking is not. Will he will talk about the 1999 crash of
   the Mars Climate Orbiter allegedly due to JPL's errors in metric-imperial
   conversion, or the crash landing of Deep Space2 A allegedly due to
   improper hardware testing, or Britain's loss of the Beagle 2 after
   separation from their Mars Express?
   -----------------
   The merging of art and science is the future of digital media. This is
   especially true in the world of modulation and simulation.

   Modeling and Simulation on the Way to Mars
   Walt Engelund, NASA engineer
   Friday, April 1, 2011, 7pm
   Newman Auditorium (Emeritus Hall)
   Santa Rosa Campus

   In a career spanning 22 years at NASA, Walt Engelund has worked on
   everything from rocket designs, airplanes that travel ten times the speed
   of sound, and spacecraft that have landed on the surface of Mars. In this
   talk he will explain how NASA uses advanced modeling and simulation tools
   across multiple disciplines to help design and certify the entry, descent,
   and landing (EDL) system on the Mars Science Laboratory, NASAa**s next
   flagship mission to Mars, scheduled to launch in the fall of 2011.

   SRJC, so be sure to purchase a one day parking pass if you don't already
   have A a permit.
