UCLA Anderson Grads Celebrate Mars Exploration Anniversary

Allen Chen (FEMBA ’07)

On August 5, 2012 NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity touched down—and six UCLA Anderson alumni breathed a sigh of relief. Allen Chen (FEMBA ’07), Keith Comeaux (EMBA ’08), Keith Naviaux (FEMBA ’98), Kelly Clarke (FEMBA ’02), Jeffery Favretto (FEMBA ‘09) and Saina Ghandchi (EMBA ‘13) all participated in some stage of Curiosity’s development, from design to touchdown. In fact, it was Chen’s voice you might have heard announce the mission’s first success, “Touchdown confirmed. We are safe on Mars.” Look for expanded coverage of the Curiosity rover mission and the Anderson grads involved in the newest issue of Assets Digital, which you can read online or get the Assets Digital iPad app.

RockCorps Trades Beats for Volunteer Feats


RockCorps, the brainchild of UCLA Anderson alumni Stephen Greene ('01) and Grady Lee ('01), continues to make a worldwide difference. Founded in 2003, the production company trades concert tickets for volunteerism. For four hours of work on pro-social projects, musicians as diverse as Jurassic 5, Lady Gaga, Snoop Dogg, Maroon 5 and The Smashing Pumpkins perform for crowds sometimes numbering in five digits. In mid-July, the French chapter of RockCorps made headlines by hosting 1,300 volunteers for a show in Paris featuring Trey Songz, Oxmo Puccino, Kerry James, Tal and DJ Cut Killer. More than 130,000 music fans have donated 4-hour blocks of time since RockCorps’ founding.
