“It’s been a marathon of a job, at a constant sprinter’s pace,” said Brian Schratz.
Penn State electrical engineering alumnus Brian Schratz, entry descent and landing communications lead for the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) for Mars Curiosity, is front and center, (pointing and wearing a Penn State lanyard) celebrating the rover’s landing in NASA’s Image of the Day this morning.
Schratz is one of two Penn State engineering alumni working on Mars Curiosity. The other is Ray Baker, JPL senior propulsion systems engineer who helped develop the rover lander’s engines.
