Spotlight Mars Rover Design.jpg
This artist's concept provided by NASA/JPL-Caltech via the Rockford Register Star, shows the rover and descent stage for NASA's Mars Science Laboratory spacecraft during the final minute before the rover, Curiosity, touched down on the surface of Mars. Dan Scharf, a senior engineer with NASA's Jet Propulson Laboratory in California was in charge of the guidance, navigation and control for the backup landing system for the Mars Science Laboratory spacecraft that carried the Curiosity rover to Mars. That backup system would have taken over steering for the spacecraft to hit its landing target, if there had been any problems with the primary landing system. Scharf was a 1991 graduate of Boylan Catholic High School in Rockford, Ill.
