UA Engineering Alum Pilots Martian Rover

Engineering Alum Pilots Martian Rover: "The solar system's coolest field trip started in January when two NASA rovers, Spirit and Opportunity, rolled onto the surface of Mars.

They were delivered there by interplanetary valet, Chris Lewicki, who graduated from UA in 2000 with a master's degree in Aeronautical Engineering. Lewicki, flight director on NASA's Mars Exploration Rovers Mission, was in charge of events from the time the landers bounced onto the ground until the rovers left tracks in the soil."
