Funeral for a NASA Robot: Empathy in Storytelling

NASA operates missions over decades, and those plucky space explorers become part of the family. So, saying goodbye is personal. How do we honor and celebrate when a mission like Cassini or the Opportunity rover comes to an end? We bring the public along for a very special “wake” to say goodbye (and thank you). Find out what it takes to create a successful shared experience in the public realm and hear personal stories from the NASA teams who lived with – and helped give life to – those robotic explorers.
