Our next meeting will be held on Friday, March 24 at the Ponderosa fire station.
Join us at 6:30 for the fun and educational FYI session and then at 7:30 we will have an exciting presentation by Annie Wargetz who will present We are All Explorers.
We have explored the lands of the Earth and are now endeavoring to explore every corner of our solar system. In fact, there are so many currently active missions studying our celestial neighborhood that it’s easy to miss a few updates. We’ll start our journey by talking about those missions and the ones soon-to-come. Then, we will dive into what it takes to design these missions and spacecraft that are essentially our traveling laboratories that explore where we currently cannot. And while we may not all be able to travel along with those spacecraft, when we follow the science that comes from their missions, we become explorers, too. Join NASA/JPL Solar System Ambassador volunteer Annie Wargetz on a journey through the vast catalog of current solar system exploration missions and then navigate through the process of space mission and spacecraft design.
