By Larry S. Crumpler, Ph.D.

Feb 18 2023 – 6:30pm to 8:00pm
Location: Planetarium

Join us at the Museum on Saturday, Feb. 18 for our second Voices in Science Lecture of 2023, featuring our own Research Curator of Volcanology and Space Sciences, Dr. Larry Crumpler, who is a member of NASA’s Perseverance Mission Science Team. This Museum is the ONLY museum (other than the Smithsonian Air & Space) with a direct connection to a Mars rover mission!

On the 2nd Anniversary of NASA’s amazing Perseverance/Ingenuity mission to Mars, Dr. Crumpler will discuss the latest mission results, the flights made by the unique Ingenuity helicopter, and the samples that have been collected by the rover. Don’t miss this presentation of information, images, and discoveries from this ongoing cutting-edge expedition to the surface of Mars.

Pre-registration is required as seats are limited. Please note that this lecture starts a half-hour earlier than previous events in this series.
