Yoon. Between late June and late November of 2011, the Mars Science Laboratory Multi-Mission Radioisotope Thermoelectric Generator team delivered the Multi-Mission Radioisotope Thermoelectric Generator for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration's Mars Science laboratory mission, which launched on November 26, 2011. Much planning went into the delivery of the unit, supporting a “hot fit check' with the Jet Propulsion Laboratory supplied rover, Curiosity, in early July, and careful monitoring of the power system until final integration with the rover in mid-November. Activities included implementing a documented safety analysis for three temporary nuclear facilities at Kennedy Space Center, implementing a rigorous Unreviewed Safety Question process for Department of Energy’s Kennedy Space Center and Jet Propulsion laboratory procedures, and actively participating in radiological contingency planning and Implementation for launch.
