The European Space Agency’s Rosetta mission to Comet 67P
 
For 29 years Warwick Holmes worked on European Space Agency (ESA) spacecraft which included the development of interplanetary exploration, Earth observation, telecommunications, global navigation and spacecraft missions. His technical specialty is in the development of spacecraft avionics systems focusing on software and hardware systems, and managing teams of engineers building spacecraft.
 
Warwick has built, tested and launched ten different spacecraft; each program exceeded A$2 billion in value. In this lecture, Warwick will present the highlight of his space engineering career: the historic success of the Rosetta Comet-67P Orbiter and Lander mission.
