The Inglewood Public Library is celebrating the ongoing exploration of Mars on Saturday, February 9, 2013, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in the Gladys Waddingham Lecture Hall at the Main Library, 101 West Manchester Boulevard.
Dr. Melissa Rice of the California Institute of Technology, a member of the science team for the Curiosity and Opportunity rovers, will show what we've learned recently about the Red Planet. Volunteers from the Planetary Society, an international organization that supports the exploration of space, will also be at the library to answer questions.
Mayor James T. Butts invites residents of Inglewood and nearby areas to learn about our nearest planetary neighbor. "Inglewood and the South Bay have historically been, and continue to be, a center for space exploration across the world."
This free program is open to all.
