Planning for Moon Day is in full swing.
Tom has been working hard on getting the rover and displays ready. This will be our last meeting before Moon Day, so we have to plan the details, and of course we need a max turnout of volunteers!

In solar system news, both Opportunity (yes, it is still going!) and Curiosity are in the news, with even more revelations on how Mar’s wet past was a more ph neutral past than previously thought.
Also hitting the news were concerned about space radiation and surface perchlorate’s, and what they mean for manned Mars exploration. While both are of concern, both are solvable. More importantly, there is a national discussion of what these developments mean for manned Mars missions….the country is slowly aligning to a manned mission to Mars…
See you Sunday!
