Eric De Jong

Eric De Jong is a Planetary Scientist in the Science Division of NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. He is the Principal Investigator for the NASA/JPL Solar System Visualization (SSV) project. Eric and a team of scientists and animators use spacecraft observations, models, simulations, computer graphics, image processing and digital cinema technology to creates virtual voyages to other worlds. The SSV team works with NASA space and earth science mission teams to create images and movies that highlight science discoveries and mission plans. You can view and download images from these missions at: NASA, JPL, Photojournal


Projects

Juno Icon Juno
Juno will fly to Jupiter and orbit its polar regions in order to understand the planet's gross size and structural properties, as well as measure Jupiter's atmospheric composition, temperature and deep wind profiles.

LRO - Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter Icon LRO - Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter
The Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter (LRO) launched in June 2009 with the objectives of finding safe lunar landing sites, locate potential resources, characterize the radiation environment, and demonstrate new technology.

Solar Probe Plus Icon Solar Probe Plus
Solar Probe Plus will study the streams of charged particles the Sun hurls into space from a vantage point where the processes that produce the solar wind actually occur.

MRO - Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter Icon MRO - Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter
NASA's Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) launched in 2005 and is on a search for evidence that water persisted on the surface of Mars for a long period of time.

MSL - Mars Science Laboratory Icon MSL - Mars Science Laboratory

The Curiosity rover landed at Gale Crater on August 5, 2012. It is designed to search for and assess past or present habitable environments, i.e., those capable of supporting microbial life.


DESDynI Icon DESDynI
DESDynI is a dedicated U.S. InSAR and LIDAR mission optimized for studying hazards and global environmental change.

STEREO Icon STEREO
STEREO (Solar TErrestrial RElations Observatory) is the third mission in NASA's Solar Terrestrial Probes program (STP).
