Mars as a Service: Cloud Computing for the Red Planet Exploration Era

Feb 3, 2011 |

The MetNet project aims to go where no other Mars missions have gone before, at least in terms of the way it will gather and then process data. This mission to Mars will be based on the power of a new type of dandelion seed-shaped landing vehicle called the MetNet Lander. Dr. Jose Luis Vazquez-Poletti describes the project’s goals, methods, and how cloud computing is set to provide the resources for this data-intensive mission.
