Mars ‘Curiosity’ rover equipped with Polish sensors

06.08.2012 11:10

NASA’s ‘Curiosity’ rover which successfully landed on Mars, Monday morning, is fitted with infrared detectors manufactured by the Polish VIGO System company.

“We are an official supplier of components to NASA [and] we feel great satisfaction that we have supplied limited help in achieving this ambitious mission,” Mirosław Grudzień director of VIGO System SA, a company based in Warsaw, has said.

“Uncooled MCT infrared detectors developed at VIGO System have been chosen for use in a tunable laser spectrometer instrument designed to acquire information about the Martian environment during the Mars Science Laboratory mission,” says the company web site.

The sensors will be part of the rover’s search for signs of life on the Red Planet, particularly carbon, after the vehicle, the size of a small family saloon car, touched down on the surface of the planet this morning.

Curiosity, launched eight months ago, travelled the 566 million kilometers between Earth and Mars at 17 times the speed of sound.

The 2.5 billion USD mission, launched on 26 November 20111 from Cape Canaveral, Florida, comes aims to analyze samples of soil, rocks and atmosphere on the spot and beam results back to Earth.

The first lunar rover the U.S.A used in the first place was by Polish Miezsyslaw Bekker.

__

Most of your great Rocket scientists of Russia came from Western Ukraine even some in Poland.

Which you would consider just "Polish"

__
_

Konstantin Ciolkowski was of Polish orgins & was the founder of your Russian rocketry.

The biggest influence of Korolev was Ciolkowski.

Korolev came from Western Ukraine anyways.

This is a private company in Poland of VIGO which the U.S.A powerful established govenrment influenced & funded NASA has turned to for infared sensors.

__

Your Soviets used Government funding to create a directed, centralized, planned rocketry.

__

It is much more difficult for private companies like VIGO to do such.

__
_
_
_

Anyways isn't most of your Russian technology all government?

_
_
_
_

Poland is proving it's self with private enterprise with these VIGO infared snesors used by NASA.

With Polish Solaris private bus company inventing the hybrid bus & creating the top of buses in the world.

With Polish Sylvester Porowski with private enterprise inventing blue lasers used in blue ray disc

With Polish private companies actually creating some of the most effective & low cost blue lasers for blue ray disc.

Polish private company Ammono creating the best Best Gallium Nitride (Blue lasers)

__
_
_
_

With, little money due to crappy communism Polish private companies are creating some of the best high tech technology in the world?

_
_

What are private companies doing in Russia in innovation?

It seems past & present in the past 100 years Russian technology / innovation is almost entirely based upon the government involvement without private enterprise?

Cialkovsky was not of Polish origine.
Korolev came from central Ukraine which belonged to Russia about 400 years.
And the most of Russian rocket scientists didn`t come from Ukraine.

Shut up now.
Your dumb Polaks can only make sensors and screw wheels to cars.

That` s why Poland doesn`t have it`s own space agency and never will, while Ukraine has.

Yea, because 70 there was no private company in Russia, idiot. lol.

Russian private companies make 25 % for dream liner boeng.

The only Polish innovation is an engine working on farts of Polish peasants.

Ciolkowski's father had a Polish surname & was striaght out of Poland of Polish Szlachta nobles.

Polish rocket scientist Wladyslaw Turowicz was the top figure in Pakistan's rocketry program.

__

Ukraine has a rocket program that is respectable & intelligent but while the Ukrainian government supports a rocket program the people of Ukraine can barely feed themselves.

_

While, Poland has private enterprise developing jobs & some of the most high tech industry.

__

Poland's economy has been consistantly the top growing economy in Europe for the past 20 years.

Once Poland has money I am sure Poland will have the potential to create a rocket program.

The well being of Polish people having jobs comes first!

Before the Polish government can think of a rocket program!

Yeah, Poland had no private enterprise since 1989.
Soviet Union since 1992?

And?

__
_

Why, are Polish private companies spawning up to create top high tech technology in their fields?

Polish private enterprise companies in recent years have invented the hybrid bus / creating the Hybrid bus, Created the top infared censors & the top Blue lasers.

_
_

From an opressed 200 year period of Poland with Communism destroying Pirvate enterprise & destroying Polish wealth due to communism.

_
_

Yet, here is Poland with private enterprise popping up to create some of the top high tech industry OUT OF LOW WEALTH & COMMUNIST OPRESSION?

_
_
_

This is incredible that Poland was destroyed of enterprise & wealth from communism.

_

Polish companies keep popping up out of small wealth & strong competition to dominate their field of high tech industry.

__
_
_

Poland is probably one of the fastest growing high tech industry places in the world right now.

__

Poland has obviously made leaps & bounds in not only recovering but creating a thriving high tech niche which all the time has more & more to grow on.

_

When, look at this I am confident Poland will become the high tech leader of the future & be a complete competitor in Germany in the future.

As long as no assholes of Russia or Germany attack Poland again.

The mother of Mogilevich also had Polish surmane, so if Cialkovsky is Polish Mogilevich is also POlish.

Polish high tech is a joke.
Russia has hundreds of innovations like this hybrid bus.

Poland didn`t have it`s own space agency while Ukraine has and performs space launches, Poland cannot make a nuclear reactor, Poland cannot make a jet plane, Poland cannot make a big ship..... there are a lot of things which can make even such a failed state as Ukraine and Poland can`t.

Even Ukranian army and Ukranian population is more numerous than Polish ones.

I think Ukranian can destroy Poland without any help of Russia or Germany like losers Poles are.

Yes & such advancements should be methodical.

Not in the Soviet way of take funding from the public to make nuclear bombs, AK47's, T-34 tanks & space mission while the whole of the Soviet Unon proper waited on bread lines hungry & dressed in rags waitng for something better.

__
_

Truth of the mattr is private enterprise breeds success & breeds jobs, wealth creation moves Nations forward.

Communism does th complete opposite to why it economic stagnates with no hope for a real future.

_
_

As Poand creates wealth & jobs from private enterprise it can build up wealth methodically & do things in proportion.
_
_
_

Ukraine seems to be following Soviet model of put rockets into space while much of Ukraine can barely feed it's self.

Sure, a rocket launch program in Ukraine is nice.

However it would make sense for Ukraine to focus on wealth / job creation to buid up wealth efore it thinks of such rocket launch programs.

_
_
_
_

P.S the founder of the jet plane was an East German of Ludwig Bolkow of the obvious Polish surname Bolkowski.

_
_
_

Why, is it the great Nazi & Soviet technology was mostly from people who came from areas of Germany & Russia closest to the border of Poland?

I think that really says something!

Even some of the best Austrian intellects like Gregor Mendel & Ferdinand Porsche came from near the Polish border.

__
_

Poland seems to be the center of the Intelligent world!

Germans & Russians & Austrians only tapped into this after the Partitions of Poland.

Hence why so many of the great intellects of these Nations came from areas closest to Poland or of Polish surnames or Polish ethnic orgins!

Rocket launch programms gives big money and devolope high technlogies.

All space prjects were funded by governments including Apollo program.

No private company wil ever fund no space project.

It was Soviet models that opened space age.
If USSR wouldn`t put a man to space, USA would never made it too, there would be no reason to do it for it.
That means there would be no such things as GPS positioning and a lot of other things.

Poland will never overtake devoloped countries like Germany.
My gues is that Poland will be for Germany what is Mexico is for USA.

Yes, the U.S.A with a high GDP wealth & well fed citizens funded the Apollo program it could afford.... well basically afford.

Ukraine with the lowest of Per Capita Income GDP in Europe & with many citizens nearly starving is putting rockets into space why?

__

What, has the Ukraine rocket program done for Ukraine?

A few years ago Ukraine had the biggest drop in GDP in Europe.

_
_

Sure, the Rocket program out of Ukraine provides some jobs.

But, the very funding that goes into it probably costs more than Ukraine recieves in jobs.

__
_

As, far as technology goes yes Rocket programs spawn technology.

But, with much greater funding than Ukraine can even put into it.

Unless Ukraine want's to put a large proportion of it's GDP into it's rocket program & create another Holodomor.

It seems Poland proportionately has been growing in developement of high tech more rapidly in proportion than Germany has actually.

Poland went from nothing in 1989 from communism to a few niche markets in Poland which produce the top high technology in it's field.

__

Germany is mostly relying on previous technology.

__

Poland had companies but German Nazis dismantled many & then Soviets dismantled the rest.

Then Poland recieved crappy Communism which couldn't create private enterprise.

_
_
_

Yet, here Poland is today with a few companies which have popped out of nothing & out of low wealth & past communist & opression scars upon Poland to become high technology leaders in their technological field.

Now that is impressive.

You mean Polish people will take over Germany as Mexicans will take over the U.S.A.

Well, okay I support that!

__
_
_

Mexico? Really?

Mexico just 10 years ago or so had a time period when it had slightly higher Per Capita Income than Poland.

Poland is already about 1/4th higher in Per Capita Income than Mexico.

_
_

Mexico didn't face WW1, WW2, Soviet Union.
_
_
_
_
_

Actually Poland will probably be like Finland & South Korea in the future as in Nations that came up out of opression & nothing into top technology / company competitors of the world.

_
_

I am actually confident Poland will outdue Finland & South Korea.

_

Poland already seems to have more innovative high tech companies than Finland or South Korea actually.

It is a matter of creating the wealth & promotion in order for this Polish companies to become widespread job creators for Poland.

[/QUOTE]

You must be a Western European like Abe you have this kind of one track minded brain these Western Europeans have that get hyper-focused on one thing without being able to see the bigger picture while chimping out about power.

Which are Simian traits BTW.

It is like Western Europeans have a Lobster claw for a brain.

While human brains are like sponges & soak in everything.

Western Europeans have this Lobster claw for a brain that can only intensly grab one tiny thing.

This is the reason Western Europeans can't see that mass immigration will replace & destroy their Nations.

Because their lobster claw brains are too focused on one thing to soak in the bigger picture.

_

In the 1940's & 1950's people would have said about South Korea & Finland that they could never become high Per Capita Income innovative high tech company producers.

That was proven wrong.

__
_

Truth is Poland seems to be developing more rapidly than Finland did in the 1930's after 20 years or it's opression

Or
in the 1960's in South Korea that South Korea did out of it's opression.

__

Poland had more opression & less to start with than South Korea or Finland did!

Since Poland faced the center of WW1 & WW2 & then Soviet stagnation.

__
_
_
_
_
_
_

As far as Mexico goes it's issues are they are sub humans!

Mexico has nothing holding it back except it's Sub Human people.

Mexico had no real war or communism opression for hundreds of years.

_
_

Actually, the U.S brings in a lot of money for Mexico in forms of manufacturing, tourism, agriculture for U.S.A.

U.S bought in many car manufacturing jobs to Mexico.

It didn't do anything to help this failure of a Nation.

This must be your German Lobster claw brain speaking.

That you are incapable of seeing how Poland is developing at the most rapid pace proportionately in the world today actually.

Your lobster claw Western European brain is incapable of figuring this out.

__

Same reason you are probably one of the only Russians on Earth who can't figure out that Muslims will slowly take over & destroy Russia.

Your Western European lobster claw brain can't figure out the bigger picture.

Polish Catholic Americans came to the U.S poor in the 1900's

By 1970's Polish Catholic Americans had a higher income than English, German, Irish or Italian Americans.

__

Further proof of your Western European lobster claw brain.

You seem to be completely incapable of figuring out the bigger picture & instead of throwing dirty Western European / Jew ape fits like your dirty primitive simian types usually do.
