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.

Poetry of the Night:

A Nightwatchman’s Journey

by

Dr. David H. Levy

Wendee’s Husband,

Comet and Asteroid Hunter, Co-Discoverer, Shoemaker-Levy 9

Editor of the web magazine Sky’s Up!

Columnist, Skyward, in the local Vail Voice paper,

Emmy Award Winner, “Three Minutes to Impact” Documentary,

Five honorary doctorates in Science and a PhD which combines astronomy and English Literature

 

“This presentation will be a look at the two main (and sometimes conflicting) aspects of my astronomical career, the search for comets, and the relation of English poetry to the night sky. One involves looking at the sky; the other involves feeling the sky.”

Meet David

David is a PhD which combines astronomy and English Literature. He is the co-Discoverer of the legendary Comet Shoemaker-Levy 9, which impacted Jupiter in 1993, a vivid example of the importance of Planetary Defense in our lifetime.

A short bio for a tall man.

David H. Levy is arguably one of the most enthusiastic and famous amateur astronomers of our time. Although he has never taken a class in astronomy, he has written over three dozen books, has written for three astronomy magazines and has appeared on television programs featured on the Discovery and the Science Channels. Among David’s accomplishments are 23 comet discoveries, the most famous being Shoemaker-Levy 9 that collided with Jupiter in 1994, a few hundred shared asteroid discoveries, an Emmy for the documentary Three Minutes to Impact, five honorary doctorates in Science and a PhD which combines astronomy and English Literature. Currently, he is the editor of the web magazine Sky’s Up!, has a monthly column, Skyward, in our local Vail Voice paper. David continues to hunt for comets and asteroids, and lectures worldwide.
