Team News The article that I came across discusses the success of the team from NASA that led the Mars Curiosity project. The project had been in development for nearly 10 years and was completed within 1 minute of the estimated finish time (King, 2012). The article outlines a few of the initial issues that the team had to overcome including the average success rate of a Mars mission and the average success of software projects. The team is an example of a virtual and cross-functional team. There were members of the team that were geographically separated for part or all of the process (Yukl, 2006). The team was also made up of representatives from different units involved in the project, making it cross-functional (Yukl, 2006). The team was able to build on existing technology to create virtual prototypes of the rover, saving valuable time. The time saved allowed the team to be ready for deployment in November 2011, when planetary alignments were ideal for the mission (King, 2012) Traits that this team exhibited include; adaptability, ambition, dependability and stress tolerance (Yukl, 2006). These translated into an excellent set of technical, conceptual, and interpersonal skills (Yukl, 2006). The most important skill in this team effort was the interpersonal abilities of the members. There were so many different groups involved and the need to have open and respectful communication was imperative to the success of the project. I think that the best skill to work on in…

The Hamster Left on Mars
It was beautiful July day in 1976 when the Viking Lander was set to take off into space. Astronaut “Buck” Anderson was scheduled to join the other space explorers on their journey to the fourth planet from the sun, Mars.
“Are you ready for the most thrilling experience of your life?” Astronaut Michael asked little Buck, rhetorically. But of course, Buck cannot reply, because he is a hamster. And hamsters do not speak, only squeak.
“Why are you talking to a hamster…

The red planet
As one travels through space, they would pass many planets in our solar system. Gas giants, to planets with atmospheres and then to our own planet that houses billions of humans. But, there seems to be one planet that, in my opinion, is the most interesting and this would be Earth’s own neighbor. It has the ability to our second home, a planet that long ago could have been just like Earth with running water and blue skies. This planet is Mars, not yet visited personally…

However, Mars will implement market segmentation for the new sugar-free M&M’s the company is preparing to market. Market segmentation is an approach that divides the larger market into subcategories of consumers with common needs and characteristics. These subgroups may require different marketing strategies (Armstrong & Kotler, 2009). The target market for Mars, Incorporated for the…
Water and Life on Mars
Mars perhaps first caught public interest in the late 1870s, when Italian astronomer Giovanni Schiaparelli reported using a telescope to observe canali, or channels, on Mars. By the turn of the century, popular songs told of sending messages between Earth and Mars by means of huge signal mirrors. On a darker side, H.G. Wells' 1898 novel The War of the Worlds portrayed an invasion of Earth by technologically superior Martians desperate for water. (1) In the early 1900s…
An Anthropologist On Mars
Oliver Sacks is a very famous doctor of neurology as well as a writer. He spent most of his adult life treating patients. Oliver Sacks mostly concentrated on disorders of the brain and nervous system. In a lot of the cases that Sacks dealt with, there was nothing he was able to do to heal the patients. His goal was to find a way to live with and accept their condition as well as possible. Sacks enjoyed dealing with cases mostly about experiences of…
