Happenings NASA Engineer Evan Hilgemann To Lecture At The Horological Society Of New York
The surface of Venus is quite possibly the most cold spots in the close planetary system. It highlights sulfuric corrosive mists, temperatures over 450°C, and a pressing factor multiple times that of the outside of Earth. Just a modest bunch of tests have effectively arrived at the surface, and still, after all that just a short time before their hardware fizzled in the threatening environment.
At the December 9, 2019, meeting of the Horological Society of New York , Evan Hilgemann will talk about an expected answer for investigating Venus. The arrangement comes from sixteenth century robots, which were mechanical gadgets fit for playing out a progression of complex activities to accomplish a particular outcome. The Automaton Rover for Extreme Environments (AREE) would supplant weak electronic frameworks with a mechanical plan, including a mechanical watch. By using high temperature compounds, the meanderer would make due for quite a long time, permitting it to gather and restore significant long haul science information from the outside of Venus. This science information would be basic for educating and improving models of dynamic planetary frameworks. To execute AREE, “steampunk” sci-fi meets space apparatus innovation in a novel wanderer that should be powerful and ready to work during its whole mission without human intervention.
About Evan Hilgemann
Evan Hilgemann is a mechanical architect at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory . In his present position he parts time between working the Mars wanderer Curiosity and creating novel mechanical strategies to investigate probably the most sultry and coldest spots in the nearby planetary group. Beforehand, he added to different rocket deployable frameworks and co-drove an explorative investigation to put a long-length meanderer on the outside of Venus. Evan is attracted to this field by an inalienable feeling of investigation and experience, and he appreciates offering the excitement of room investigation to others.
In expansion to his normal everyday employment, Evan moonlights as a telescope administrator and science instructor at the Griffith Observatory . Evan procured a M.S. degree in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Michigan and a B.S. degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln .
