Lecture -- Mars Rover Mission Update: Seven Years Before the (Pancam) Mast
Dr. Crumpler has been a scientist on the NASA Mars Exploration Rover Mission throughout its entire 7 Earth years (or 3.5+ "Mars years") roving the planet. Spirit and Opportunity are still in the process of the first true field geologic exploration of another planet. We have had several requests for a new Mars update and it is always "standing-room only" in the DynaTheater when Dr. Crumpler talks about the latest Mars Rover exploration results.don't miss this presentation of the newest information and images from this historic natural history expedition to the surface of Mars.
Dr. Larry Crumpler is Research curator at the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science. He is a scientist on the NASA Mars Exploration Rover Mission and also served on HiRISE, part of the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter mission. He divides his time between planetary geological research and New Mexico volcanology; and was recently elected as a Fellow of the Geological Society of America. He continues to serve as "long-term planning lead" (LTP) for the daily telecons that define the activities of Spirit or Opportunity; and he continues to have a great time being a "field geologist" on Mars. Come hear some Mars stories from our local expert.
