Liftoff #76: Talking Curiosity with Emily Lakdawalla →

This week’s episode of Liftoff is a special one. Jason and I got to talk with Emily Lakdawalla to discuss her new book, The Design and Engineering of Curiosity: How the Mars Rover Performs Its Job. We got nerdy about how the Curiosity rover works, what’s next for robotic exploration of Mars and why Venus tends to get the shaft when it comes to NASA missions.
