The Pathfinders" - Documentary - (1of4)

This is the first installment of a 35 minute documentary on Mars Pathfinder.  The project is a great example of extraordinary creativity and team work.  These explorers innovated at every step of the project and, as they say in the video, tested everything again and again so they would be ready for any eventuality.  The results of the mission are inspiring and demonstrate true shared leadership, curiosity and courage.


"35 minute documentary on JPL / NASA's Mars Pathfinder Mission which landed on July 4th 1997. The documentary, which was directed and edited by John Beck Hofmann and produced by Brian Muirhead, won the Gold Plaque award at the 1999 Chicago International Film Festival - Intercom.
