We often see people on this site bashing NASA for one reason or another (usually accusing them of doctoring pictures and or not being truthful, that's not my stance on NASA just an observation) but here is an article that I found that actually makes them the good guys for once

A NASA, Carnegie Mellon and the USGS team has deployed a Senseta MAX 5.0A Rover to help in the Dawn Sanchez murder case, they used the rover to perform magnetic surveys of a vacant lot in Alviso, Calif., looking for buried material evidence, which included car parts and a possible body buried in the old junk yard.

The rover found car parts that matched the suspect's car (this is an 18 year old case) , buried in the junk yard and the suspect then was convicted of manslaughter, and sentenced to six years in prison. heh fair play NASA!

Check the article out it's quite interesting..

Now that's what I call putting our tax dollars to good use.

I know this poor woman's family is so relieved as well.

Thanks for this great article!

Hi Copperflower, yeah I agree with you, it's good thing that Dawn Sanchez's family have now got closure on this, It's also good to see NASA's technology going to good use on a case like this!

Good news for the victims family

Maybe they can help in my country..... By pissing off and stopping the disclosure whitewash they are forcing upon us and the rest of the world! I didnt and dont pay for NASA.... Never will.

Edit to say S&F for your find!

Dont want to sound harsh on NASA but i do realy hate them but your article is a nice (but a short) relief from the utter garbage they normaly operate

Hi quantumdragon, now that Obama has put the moon return mission on the back burner I think it's good NASA can help out with this kinda thing while they think about going to Mars, I must say coming from the UK I don't feel the hostility towards NASA that others do here on the site, I get what people think and why, but they do some good as well, the technology they have produced and put out there for the common man is pretty much mind blowing, 6,300 patents filed with the U.S. government is no small amount of tec...

Thats amazing,finally the family can be at ease.
i wonder if this sort of thing will become more regular in murder cases,is it very expensive to use on a regular basis ?
good job NASA something i haven't said for a while.

Hi rhynouk, Yeah it’s a good story about NASA for once, and the family now at least have closure on Dawn, I really couldn’t tell you if this type of technology will be used more regular on this kind of case, it would seem a good idea to use it more though in my opinion, as for the cost again I couldn’t tell you for sure it doesn’t say anything in the article about money or cost but from what I can gather the rover was already built so the initial cost of the build was already taken care of, here is a bit more on the rover..

i didn't know the number of patents was that much.

exploring deep space with unmanned probes and a mission to mars is i think the right direction too.

i do like NASA and what they do. maybe they could help and get this device on the mass market and help crimefighting everywhere.

NASA has some questions that they may never answer thou.
