February General Meeting

Follow The Water - Talk by Dr. Jeffrey Moore

David Smith

Spirit and Opportunity have been roving Mars for more than a Martian year, coming up on two Earth years. Mars Global Surveyor, Odyssey, and Mars Express continue to study our neighboring planet from orbit. What are they telling us? At our February 11 meeting, SJAA member Dr. Jeffrey Moore will give us the scoop on the history of water on Mars. A scientist at NASA's Ames Research Center, Jeff is currently a member of the Mars Exploration Rover team, as well as the New Horizons Pluto mission. He is Principal Investigator of a NASA-funded Martian brines and evaporites aqueous chemistry experiment, and has recently investigated the evolution of the Martian south polar deposits, and the nature of lacustrine and hydrological processes on Mars.
