"MARS: YOUR PERSONAL 3-D JOURNEY TO THE RED PLANET"
Welcome to Mars! Through the eyes of Curiosity, Opportunity, and the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter spacecraft, this talk will introduce you to the geology of Mars and the groundbreaking achievements in the exploration of the Red Planet. Through the use of 3D glasses, you will have the opportunity to explore impact craters, volcanoes, ancient rivers and other geological features on Mars. Although most of us will never have the opportunity to visit Mars, I hope this talk will serve as your personal journey to the Red Planet (Text by Antonio Paris)
Dr. Paris will pass out 3-D glasses at the beginning of the talk and then continue to speak on the book content when he appears at the TAAS General Meeting as part of his book tour. The talk will focus on the geology on Mars with emphasis on future human exploration.
