Back in November of 2013, I told you about the United Launch Alliance & Siemens Partnership.
Here is a great video that highlights some of thebenefits that United Launch alliance achived by working with Siemens software.
Siemens PLM software, including NX, plays an essential role in enabling deep-space exploration for international space programs. The same Atlas V family used today also launched the Mars Rover Curiosity into space for its journey to Mars and its anding on the Mars. Siemens PLM software was also used on the Mars Rover program to help in the design, production and testing of the Curiosity Rover.
