MONTHLY MEETING: Monday, January 21st, 7:30 p.m., Classroom B, 3rd floor, Center on Church, Downtown Roanoke. The RVAS is proud to present Scott King, Professor of Geophysics at Virginia Tech, who is heading one of 24 new research teams selected by NASA this past summer to receive data collected by the Mars InSight lander. Long interested in the internal structure of Mars and how geologically active present-day Mars is, Dr. King will share how his team’s work will contribute toward answering these and oth-er questions. Be sure to join us for this program about planetary science on the cutting edge, plus our monthly What’s Up, Deep Space Challenge and other regular activities.
