Curiosity rover landed on Mars with a complex sequence ever attempted before. The rover is the size of a small car will explore Mars for signs of life. In the mission control room in Pasadena, the sequence of the rover landing and monitoring are also conducted through numerous Mac.
Curiosity Mars rover touched down on Mars and delicate landing procedure has been followed step by step from the mission control room at NASA in Pasadena, California. Among the applause, handshakes and shouts to vent the stress of waiting for the most difficult part of the mission, and of course to celebrate its completion, in the control room you can see multiple Macs at work. Macs used by engineers and technicians at NASA are visible in a photograph released by the space agency official American image that is shown below in this article.
The operation was hailed as an “unprecedented technological Exploit” from U.S. President Barack Obama, is so a part of its success to Apple computers. At the time of writing we have no precise information on the infrastructure of the NASA center in Pasadena, so it is not possible to determine the exact percentage of Mac employees, in any case any fan of Apple can not help but note with satisfaction that a computer similar if not identical to that used daily for personal or business, was chosen to manage an extremely delicate task. We recall that the new Curiosity Mars Rover mission is part of the Mars Science Laboratory, a project that will require a total of 25 billion dollars with the goal of identifying traces of life on Mars.
The rover-Laboratory Curiosity in complexity and size is unprecedented and it weighs a ton, about the size of a small car and is powered by nuclear energy. For these reasons it was dropped by parachute landing pads and anti-shock groped for something never done before. Curiosity was literally dropped on Mars from a platform powered by rockets that have controlled and slowed down. Now from the crater Gale, Curiosity will begin the exploration and collection of samples to carry out its mission lasting about 2 years. It ‘expected that the Mac used in the mission control room in Pasadena will have a lot of work for the next few months. So I think for the success of this project the real Thanks goes to Apple Mac.
