Autonomous navigation

Dr. Mark Woods explains how the rover technologies must be partly autonomous, since the signals from Earth to Mars take too long for every command to be send from Earth.  The technologies developed for space, also have applications on Earth.

This video is part of a series of ten which look at the one of the...

Steve Spittle – Emerging Technology Lead in Digital Intelligence

Steve looks at new technologies that advance the space industry.  He works at the Space Applications Catapult, in Harwell.  He gives the example of how image processing techniques used in the satellite industry can be used in the medical imaging.  Imaging data has also been used to prevent illegal logging and to...

Career Clips: Solar Energy Researcher

From the Institute of Physics, this eight minute film follows a PhD student as her research into photovoltaic cells takes her to an academic conference in Hawaii. This helps to illustrate how collaboration and communication is a big part of a scientist's work. We also see her at work back in the laboratory, where...

Energy Analyst

Rebecca Beresford is an energy analyst at EDF Energy. This clip could be useful when teaching about sustainable development, enery efficiency or climate change. It also illustrates a career that requires an understanding of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Rebecca describes her role, "...

Atacama Desert

Astrobiologist Dr. Lewis Dartnell talks from the Atacama Desert about a research trip to find extremophiles that might give scientists some clues as to the kind of life that may exist on the surface of Mars.  Lewis shows how quartz can act as a natural sunscreen to enable cyanobacteria to grow in the dry desert...

Astrobiology

Dr Claire Cousins and Mark Fox-Powell explain how scientists look at life that exists in extreme environments on Earth, to see what kind of life scientists might see on the surface of Mars.  This knowledge helps scientists plan the best target for a rover.

Professor Cockell takes us through the astrobiology...
