12 Minutes with mechanical engineering professor Jason Rabinovitch
It's called DAVINCI+. It is an ambitious NASA project to send a probe through the atmosphere of Venus.
The probe will crash and disintegrate on the planet, but not before sending upwards of an hour's worth of data back to Earth.
To successfully land a probe on Venus is not even being discussed, but when the time comes, NASA will consult a professor of mechanical engineering at Stevens Institute of Technology in Hoboken. His name is Jason Rabinovitch.
Rabinovitch is working at NASA's Jet Propulsion Lab in California this summer. He has come up with nearly 180 possible landing spots on Venus. How did he do it? Forget all the hype about Mars for a second and come learn about a planet that humans may never be able to visit.
This is 12 minutes with Jason Rabinovitch.
