MONTHLY ZOOM MEETING: Monday, August 17th, 7:30 p.m. July 30th began a launch window
extending through August 15th for the Mars 2020 mission. On board will be the Perseverance
Rover, scheduled to land on the Red Planet February 18, 2021. It’s main job is to
search for signs of ancient life and collect rock and soil samples for possible return
to Earth. For our featured program at the August Zoom meeting, E. C. Member at Large
and Outreach Coordinator Ray Bradley will discuss the mission and provide details
about its development, instrumentation, capabilities and goals. In addition we’ll
have our monthly What’s Up sky review for September, along with observing and other
reports and announcements. Participation will continue to be limited to RVAS members.
Invitations and instructions for signing in will be emailed to members.
