RT TV INTERVIEW
Hector Guerrero Interview on RT TV. Printed version here.
(Russia Today-Héctor Guerrero) Russia, a giant space full capacity in all areas of astronautics and Spain, a country that takes its first steps in space and spares no effort when it comes to favoring coordinates missions. Each project is an adventure space long period. Success comes from detailed planning of lessons learned in the previous level, technological maturity persistence and a philosophy based on the constant search for "total reliability".

MARS ON THE CLOUD: CLOUD COMPUTING FOR THE MARS EXPLORATION
After the last meeting of the Metnet Group that was hold in Helsinki, the latest results from the Phobos tracing application were presented to the Scientific Team. In this work Amazon Public Cloud was used as already NASA did a year after Mars Metnet. As a result of the meeting, another application was assigned for its Cloud porting. This application processes meteorological data from previous Mars Missions and it will be used for data provided by the future Mars MetNet probes.
Additionally, an article with the complete achievements of this meeting has been featured by “HPC in the Cloud”. You can read it here.
