Description

Our society has benefited from Space exploration in many ways. Many of the inventions we use nowadays have their origin in or have been improved by Space research. Computer Science is not an exception. This talk will introduce the application of Cloud Computing done by the speaker in the context of different Mars missions: Mars MetNet (Spain-Russia-Finland), MSL Curiosity (NASA) and ExoMars2016 (ESA). The achieved know-how allowed the optimization of other areas at Planet Earth, such as weather forecast and agricultural wireless sensor networks processing.
