This lecture will be presented online only.

We will explore how augmented reality, virtual reality, and other forms of mission ops visualization can influence our public outreach and vice versa. As we delve deeper into the synergy of this work, we will see how it affects the way we design our spacecraft and the way we look at the world.

About the Series

The Theodore von Kármán Lecture Series, named after JPL's founder, and presented by JPL's Office of Communication and Education, brings the excitement of the space program's missions, instruments and other technologies to both JPL employees and the local community. Lectures take place twice per month, on consecutive Thursdays and Fridays. The Thursday lectures take place in JPL's Theodore von Kármán Auditorium and are streamed live via Ustream, and Friday lectures take place at Caltech. Both start at 7:00 p.m. Admission and parking are free for all lectures. No reservations are required, but seating is limited. Caltech manages JPL for NASA.
