Mars Curiosity Rover - Assessing the Conditions for Life on the Red Planet
Our very own Solar System Ambassador for NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Ginny Mauldin-Kinney, will give us an in depth look at the Mars Science Laboratory spacecraft now on its way toward an August rendezvous with the Red Planet with the remarkable Curiosity Rover on board.
We are expecting a capacity crowd for this meetup. I’ll be sending out an email to those signed up with information on how to place orders in advance, so that we can work with Java Vino to make food service more efficient and less disruptive.
