NASA is set to inspire the next generation of space enthusiasts in Aberdeen.
Following the success of last year’s event NASA in Aberdeen, NASA will return to the Granite City to encourage those who are considering a career in science or engineering.
Mason Markee, robotics engineer for NASA, will host a talk titled To Mars and Beyond today.
The successful engineer will discuss the role of robotics in NASA’s future missions to the Moon, Mars and beyond.
Mason helped to develop and design prototype lunar rovers as well as electric cars.
He will be joined by Robert Joseph Cenker, an American aerospace and electrical engineer and former astronaut.
Robert will talk about his experiences of life in space.
Both NASA employees will be happy to answer any questions aspiring engineers may have.
The event is sponsored by Statoil Production.
Hedda Felin, managing director at Statoil Production said: “We are proud to once again support NASA in Aberdeen, which this year links the energy and space industries through the theme of robotics.”
NASA in Aberdeen: Inspiring the Next Generation will take place tomorrow at 7pm at Robert Gordon’s College.
