Dan Maznek is a Senior Space Systems Engineer at NASA’s Langley Research Center. Dan is excited about the big ideas NASA has about its Asteroid Redirect Mission. You may have heard the agency is planning to capture an asteroid and move it into orbit around the moon. ”Why?”, You might ask. “Well, this is not your run of the mill, “bring me a rock” exercise. On the contrary. The technologies and the operational capabilities that will be developed to enable us to retrieve the asteroid, move it and send astronauts to it for research, will be repurposed to also help us send astronauts to Mars. How’s that for an idea?!
