Mars Exploration – 28th January 2010

The speaker at our January meeting was Doug Ellison. He gave us a fascinating talk about the exploration of Mars, with particular emphasis on the various missions sent there in the last twenty years or so. A large part of his talk was about the astonishing rover missions Spirit and Opportunity, including the very latest available images, but he also covered the missions that led up to them, and told us something about plans for further missions, with particular emphasis on the large rover currently being prepared at JPL.
