Gregg Moss strapped on a pair of virtual reality goggles to test out the Collaborative Human Immersive Laboratory (CHIL), an advanced virtual simulation lab that offers a smarter, cheaper and lower risk opportunity for Lockheed to build their space products.

Next up was the GPS III clean room where Lockheed Martin engineers are working on delivering the first of what they hope is many satellites to modernize the Global Positioning System.
And finally, Gregg took us inside the clean room where the Mars Atmosphere and Volatile EvolutioN (MAVEN) is in the assembly phase.

The MAVEN spacecraft will orbit the red planet and is set to launch in November 2013. NASA hopes it will provide more information about Mars' atmosphere and the planet's changing climate.
