>Mike Sander, Director for JPL's Technology and Applications Programs will
>be speaking at the vonKarman Lecture series today and tomorrow on
>technologies developed from space exploration, technologies for future
>missions, and technologies benefiting the public today.
>Using some never before seen graphics & pictures, he will cover such topics
>as robotic outposts, "labs in a teacup", the past and future of imaging and
>camera development, technologies for "seeing" the data, interstellar
>mission technology, and how technologies developed for space exploration
>are in public use today.
>It will be fascinating, and fun. All welcome.
>Technologies of the Future - Today:
>New Technologies Benefit U.S. Industry
> Thursday, May 20, JPL, 4800 Oak Grove Dr., Pasadena
