Topic:             Keeping Curiosity Cool (or Warm): Thermal Control of the Newest Mars Rover

To generate electrical power, the Curiosity rover currently in operation on Mars uses a radioisotope thermal power generator instead of the solar panels used on prior missions.  This type of power generator establishes both challenges and opportunities for the rover’s thermal design.  A Goleta firm provided critical components that allow the rover to control the temperature of its sensitive science instruments utilizing the waste heat recovered from the power generator during cold Martian nights.

Speaker

Leading Teams (From the Front or From Within) Part 3 of 3

Leading Teams (From the Front or From Within) Part 3 of 3
Join us for a webinar on March 19
Space is limited.
Reserve your webinar seat now at:
https://www4.gotomeeting.com/register/815483791
·         This series of three one hour webinars provides leaders (management and non-management) with a strong foundation in working within teams to produce outstanding results. Each installment covers different elements of those things with which a leader must be concerned.o   The first hour dealt with selecting team members and setting the tone for team. In other words, in establishing leadership.

o   The second hour is about interfacing with team members face-to-face regarding the daily business of the team. How you lead has a huge impact on how (and whether) you are followed, and knowing how to create safety and openness is essential for getting the results you want.

o   The third hour is about conducting conversations on matters over which there are differences (sometimes strong differences) of opinion. Being able to channel diverse perspectives into a complete picture is something that few people approach with a plan, but a plan (and the knowledge of how to create on) is just what you need in order to navigate the sometimes difficult passage from conflict into real understanding.

Gregg Oliver is the Principal at Pathfinder Communication, LLC, an Influence and Communication training firm in San Diego, CA. He teaches leadership concepts and specific techniques used to conduct productive conversations, how to be influential and develop and maintain amazing business relationships. The author of the weekly newsletter “High Performance Communication”, he holds a BS in Quality Engineering, an MS degree in Quality Systems Management and is a member of the adjunct faculty at National University.
