Gharsa_photo.jpg

My name is Thierry Gharsa, I live in Toulouse, France and I am an electronics engineer for the ChemCam instrument. When I was young I wanted to work in the scientific disciplines of physics and chemistry. As a grown-up, I am in charge of the Electrical Ground Support Equipment (EGSE) inside the ChemCam Mast Unit. The EGSE is a set of tools consisting of a control electronics box with a computer interface and includes a high level graphical user interface used to communicate with...

I am Olivier Gasnault. I live in Toulouse, France, Planet Earth. I am a science co-investigator on ChemCam and the French Science Manager for ChemCam Operations. When I am not working on ChemCam I first take care of my family, but soon find myself at work once again for ChemCam. And sometimes on the Moon. My main activity with the instrument team is to prepare ChemCam operators to use ChemCam when it is on Mars. I assist the ChemCam Principal Investigators in making sure we use the right...

Hello! My name is René Perez and I live in Toulouse, France. As a member of the ChemCam team I helped build the Curiosity rover, or at least our contribution, ChemCam. Specifically, I am the Mast Unit integration and tests manager. This means I oversee the tests which ensure the Mast Unit plays nicely with the rest of ChemCam and the rover. When I am not working on ChemCam, I am working on another future science space mission at CNES (the French space agency).

Believe or not,...

Leon Radziemski.jpg

Hi! My name is Leon Radziemski and I am a physicist living in Tucson, AZ, USA where I have a small Research & Development company. We are working on medical devices that use ultrasound to transport energy across human skin wirelessly to run implanted devices like pacemakers. We are also working on improving the results of knee replacement operations. I currently do not have an assigned role on ChemCam, however I am one of the originators of the Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS)...

MSL-SMaurice_June-2011.jpg

Hello! My name is Sylvestre Maurice. I live in Toulouse, France and I am the Deputy Principal Investigator for ChemCam. Along with Principal Investigator Roger Wiens, I am responsible for the design, construction, testing, and delivery of the LIBS instrument. This is a very versatile job; one day an engineer, the next a manager to hire people or to solve budget issues, the following day a scientist interested in the origin and evolution of the Mars crust. Add on top of that, teaching,...
