The Speaker

Sanford M. Krasner
End-to-End Information System Engineer and Entry Descent and Landing Communications Lead for the InSight mission
NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL)

Sandy Krasner was the End-to-End Information System Engineer and Entry Descent and Landing Communications Lead for the InSight mission. In these roles, he makes sure that all the computer systems, in the instruments, spacecraft and ground system, talk to each other. He has now moved on to the same role with the NASA-ISRO Synthetic Aperture Radar (NISAR) mission.

Sandy has been at the Jet Propulsion Lab since 1979, and has worked on missions to every planet from Mercury to Saturn, along with the occasional comet and asteroid. He received Bachelors and Masters degrees in Aeronautics and Astronautics from MIT in 1975 and 1976.

Featured Presentation

The InSight Mission – Exploring the interior of Mars

On November 26, 2018, after the proverbial “6 minutes of terror”, the InSight mission landed on Mars to begin exploring the interior of Mars. InSight will measure Marsquakes and meteor strikes, and will be the first mission to go beyond literally scratching the surface of another planet. Exploring the interior of Mars will help us better understand how Mars and the Earth formed, and the early history of the Solar System. Come see how we made it to Mars, and what happens next.
