“Among all the topics I speak on, I think this one is closest to my heart because of how much time I spent working exclusively on Cu-riosity,” Pender says. “It’s a cool thing to be able to speak about the behind-the-scenes development of the technology. It’s the largest payload we’ve ever landed on another world, and it’s really paving the way for future expansion of those capabilities that might ultimately support a manned mission.”
The presentation starts tonight at 7 p.m. at the Lookout Mountain Nature Center, 910 Colorow Road in Golden. Admission is free, but you must register for the event via the public-programs link at jeffco.us/parks/parks-and-trails/lookout-mountain-nature-center/.
