Dr. Noureddine Melikechi, the dean of the College of Mathematics at Delaware State University, is working to help send another rover to Mars in 2020.
Melikechi was selected by NASA to join the mission’s SuperCam Team. SuperCam will be one of seven instruments scanning for life (past or present) on the red planet.
The dean currently works on the ChemCam Team for the ongoing Mars Curiosity mission. The SuperCam, just like the ChemCam on the current rover, will use lasers to search for life.
