The AATC2017 program committee is pleased to welcome Dr. Anita Sengupta as the closing keynote speaker for this years conference in Boston. Her keynote ‘Engineering the Red Planet’ will discuss the challenges and out of the box thinking required to explore Mars, a topic she knows a little something about as an engineer on the team that designed the 70-foot parachute that slowed the descent of the Curiosity rover so it could land safely on Mars in 2012!
