The Upcoming Europa Clipper Mission

 

by

 

Mr. Dave Doody

Space Flight Operations Engineer,

NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

 

(The speaker will present in person.)

 

Join Dave Doody, Space Flight Operations Engineer from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, for his presentation:

 

Dave will describe the Europa Clipper Mission being fabricated to investigate the Jovian moon Europa. About the size of our own Moon, Europa harbors a tantalizing saltwater ocean, which might have the potential to harbor life below its icy shell. The solar-powered spacecraft will launch atop a SpaceX Falcon Heavy in October, 2024. Dave will touch on how the spacecraft will get to the Jupiter system using gravity assist, and how the spacecraft will go about investigating Europa. Join us for this unique opportunity to hear from someone directly involved with exploring our solar system.

Mr. Dave Doody

 

Space Flight Operations Engineer,

 

NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

 

 

Dave Doody is a Senior Systems Engineer for realtime Mission Control operations. Currently working on the Psyche Mission, he previously spent 20 years flying the Cassini-Huygens Mission to Saturn, from launch through its spectacular Grand Finale in 2017.

 

 

After serving in the U.S. Air Force, Dave Doody worked as an instructor for Japan Air Lines teaching Captains and First Officers of JAL. At the same time, he led an instructional systems development effort at the JAL flight crew training center. Having landed at Catalina Island after sailing the coast, Dave worked as a systems engineer there for three years before joining the NASA-JPL Deep Space Network in Pasadena to create instructional systems and training materials for operators of the worldwide spacecraft-communications systems.

 

 

On completion of the Deep Space Network contract, Dave got his master’s degree and then went to work on the NASA Voyager mission flight operations team while Voyager 2 cruised from Saturn to Uranus and Neptune. Flight operations on Magellan, the Venus mapper, then led to flight ops work on the Cassini-Huygens mission to Saturn and Titan, where he has been since 1994.

 

 

All during the Voyager, Magellan, and Cassini mission operations, Dave has also been publishing in the technical and popular literature, teaching short courses, and speaking in public about space-flight related subjects.

 

 

Once in a while you can find Dave playing sidewalk astronomer in Pasadena, offering free telescope views of the planets to passers-by. And once a year, Dave welcomes participants from all walks of life in his “Basics of Interplanetary Flight” seminar with ArtCenter College of Design in Pasadena.

(Part I)
Countering Objections to Space Settlement
Space settlement is moving from the fringe of space conversations towards the center. As this happens some will object to one or more aspects of space settlement. Most of these objections have been heard before. Indeed, since space settlement became part of the discussion with Gerard O’Neill’s work on free space settlements in the 1970s, many of the same objections have surfaced again and again. The space settlement movement, including this author, has some experience responding to these attacks. This presentation is intended to be a place to find rebuttals to objections to space settlement. For each objection there are talking points and a brief discussion.

Mr. Al Globus worked at NASA Ames for 39 years as a contract software engineer on space settlement, asteroid mining, Hubble, space stations, X37, shuttle, Earth observation, TDRSS, cubesats, lunar teleoperation, spaceflight effects on bone, molecular nanotechnology, scientific visualization, and space solar power publishing dozens of papers on these and other topics. He founded and has run the annual NSS Space Settlement Contest for 7-12 grade students for over 25 years. The contest attracted 14,000 kids in 2020. Most recently, he found a way to build O’Neill-style space settlements with multiple orders of magnitude less mass and place them close to Earth, making launch from Earth practical.

Al is a member of the NSS Board of Directors, chairman of the Space Settlement Advocacy Committee, member of the Policy committee, and sits on the board of the Alliance for Space Development.

(Part II)
Urban-focused satellite CO2 observations from the Orbiting Carbon Observatory-3:
A first look at the Los Angeles megacity
The NASA Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 and -3 (OCO-2 and OCO-3) are the first NASA space-based sensors designed to measure carbon dioxide (CO2) from space with the precision and coverage needed to identify the sources emitting it into the atmosphere and the natural processes that absorb it at the surface.

Whereas OCO-2 (launched in 2014) provides global maps of column-averaged dry-air mole fractions of carbon dioxide (XCO2) with a 16-day repeat cycle, OCO-3 is specifically designed to support the identification and quantification of anthropogenic CO2 emissions on regional scales (<100km). OCO-3 was launched on May 4, 2019 from Kennedy Space Center via a Space-X Falcon 9 rocket. The instrument was installed two days later as an external payload on the International Space Station (ISS). OCO-3’s new Snapshot Area Map (SAM) and target mode observations provide an innovative dataset for carbon studies on sub-city scales. Unlike any other current space-based instrument, OCO-3 has the ability to scan large contiguous areas (up to 80km x 80km) of emission hot spots like cities, power plants, and volcanoes. These measurements result in dense, fine-scale spatial maps of XCO2.

Here we present XCO2 distributions over the Los Angeles megacity (LA) derived from the very first OCO-3 SAM and target mode observations taken in October 2019 and early 2020. Urban XCO2 enhancements range from 0 − 6 parts per million (ppm) relative to a clean background. OCO-3’s SAM observations reveal intra-urban variations of XCO2 over the city that have never been observed from space before. The spatial variations are mainly driven by the complex fossil fuel emission patterns and meteorological conditions in the LA Basin. In the future, OCO-3’s frequent target and SAM mode observations will play a major role in quantifying anthropogenic emissions over urban areas world wide. These measurements can help to monitor the effectiveness and progress of localized CO2 emission reduction policies.

Dr. Matthäus Kiel is a Research Scientist at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). Since obtaining his Ph.D. in Physics at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (Germany), his research has focused primarily on the retrieval of atmospheric greenhouse gas concentrations from multiple remote sensing platforms (satellite, airborne, ground-based). Dr. Kiel conducted his postdoctoral studies at the California Institute of Technology with focus on the terrestrial carbon cycle, addressing cross-cutting challenges in the anthropogenic footprint of carbon and its relationship to air quality. Presently, Dr. Kiel is a member of the OCO-2 and OCO-3 science and validation teams at JPL. He provides science support for the development of retrieval algorithms and has extensive experience in validating satellite products against independent measurements. Further, Dr. Kiel is part of the MAIA science team at JPL and works on the quality assessment of aerosol and particular matter measurements from space. He works closely with all project teams including calibration, algorithm, validation, and mission planning.

(September 21, 2020) AIAA Member Spotlight on Dr. Henry B. Garrett

Dr. Henry B. Garrett
AIAA Fellow
Principal Scientist
OFFICE OF SAFETY AND MISSION SUCCESS
Jet Propulsion Laboratory

Dr. Garrett has a doctorate in Space Physics and Astronomy. He has over 150 publications on the space environment and its effects with specific emphasis in the areas of atmospheric physics, the low earth ionosphere, radiation, micrometeoroids, space plasma environments, and effects on materials and systems in space. While on active duty in the Air Force he served as Project Scientist for the highly successful SCATHA program which studied the effects of charging on spacecraft. For this he was awarded the Harold Brown Award, the Air Force’s highest scientific award. In 1992, he was selected for a joint DoD/NASA assignment at the Pentagon as part of the Ballistic Missile Defense Organization where he acted as the Deputy Program Manager for the Clementine Lunar Mission and Program Manager for the Clementine InterStage Adapter Satellite (ISAS). For contributions to these missions, he was awarded NASA’s Medal for Exceptional Engineering Achievement. After a 30 years career in the USAF Reserves, he retired in 2002 as a full Colonel and was awarded the AF Legion of Merit. During his 40 year career at JPL, he has been responsible for defining the space environment and its effects on reliability for many NASA missions. He has also published several textbooks on the space environment and its impact on spacecraft design and reliability. Dr. Garrett is an international consultant on the terrestrial and interplanetary space environments and spacecraft reliability having worked for INTELSAT, L’Garde, NASDA, LORAL, CNES, and other organizations. In 2006 Dr. Garrett received NASA’s Exceptional Service Medal for “his achievements in advancing the understanding of space environments and effects.” Recently, Dr. Garrett co-authored with Mr. Albert Whittlesey the primary NASA standard on spacecraft surface and internal charging for earth missions. Dr. Garrett retired from full time duties at JPL in 2017 but continues in an emeritus position. He was made a Fellow of the AIAA in 2019.
“I started my “career” in astronomy in 8th grade by grinding a 6 inch telescope and learning astrophotography for the state science fair. Each year after that I worked on my project ultimately making a complex reflector/refractor telescope camera that won me a first place in physics and the top award in optics at the 1966 International Science Fair in Dallas, TX. This allowed me to get into Rice University were I became the first undergraduate in their astronomy department based on my project. Ultimately I received my PHD and went on to a career in space physics and astronomy. Years later my high school science project came to the attention of my managers at NASA and I was made the chief optical inspector for the Hubble repair project (HARP)—you never know where your STEM activities will take you: from my youth in my backyard in Roswell, NM, to the planets and beyond!! (PS: Working at JPL has allowed me to “phone home”.”
