"Mars, Year 14 - Panoramas on the Dome" - Dr. Larry Crumpler

Following a short monthly meeting of the Society,  Dr. Crumpler will lead the audience through amazing images of the history of the US rovers on Mars over the last 14 years of the Opportunity and Spirit adventures.  For this presentation,  we will have some fun projecting a series of Mars Rover panoramas on the dome for a 360-degree Mars experience. There will be time for a brief 5-10 minute "where are we now" update at the end.

Larry Crumpler is currently the Research Curator at the NMMNH&S, specializing in Volcanology and Space Sciences.  His research at this time includes studies of New Mexico volcanism and geology of the inner planets of the Solar System.  He is a member of the Mars Exploration Rover (Opportunity) science team and the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter High-Resolution Camera science team, which uplinks instructions and downlinks information from the Mars rover on a daily basis.
