In Memoriam
Peter Cavender Peter Cavender

Pete contributed to CRISM in many ways from design to operation. He helped to build cutting-edge electronics to enable the onboard data management system, and to calibration CRISM onground. After launch he wrote the software that currently calibrates the data. No science from CRISM could have been possible without Pete's unique skills; he is sorely missed, and always remembered.
