February 18, 2021 IV&V Countdown to Mars

For the six years NASA IV&V supported the Mars 2020 project, time, personnel, focuses, and schedules changed, but the goals remained. Now one of those goals is being realized as the Perseverance Rover is landing on the surface of Mars. In celebrating the landing, we want to highlight the IV&V effort and significant contribution ensuring that software behavior used during mission phases were correct and function as intended. Join us prior to the landing at 10 a.m. on Feb. 18 to learn more about the IV&V role during an IV&V-centric virtual student activity hosted by the Education Resource Center (ERC). We’ll hear from our IV&V Mars 2020 Project Manager, learn about past missions to Mars, and give students an opportunity to try their hands at some IV&V inspired coding work.
