dc.description.abstract NASA’s Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) spacecraft successfully performed its Entry, Descent & Landing (EDL) phase on August 6, 2012. This paper presents the thermal response of the MSL spacecraft from EDL Initialization (5 days prior to Entry) to Rover touchdown on the surface of Mars. Temperature telemetry recorded during EDL is used to reconstruct the thermal response of the spacecraft to each EDL event. Temperature profiles for the Descent Stage and Rover hardware are presented and explained in the context of the changing EDL environments (aerothermal heating and convective cooling) and power states. en_US
