This week we interviewed Dr. Aileen Yingst of the Planetary Science Institute. Dr. Yingst is the Deputy Project Scientist for the Mars Hand Lens Imager instrument, or MAHLI, and Co-Investigator for the combined Mastcam, MAHLI, and MARDI (Mars Descent Imager) science team.
The MAHLI instrument is responsible for Curiosity’s “self-portrait,” pictured at the left. The video we mention of Curiosity’s “tai chi” can be found at the JPL website.
