The Mars Science Laboratory rover, Curiosity, touched down on the surface of Mars on August 5, 2012 in one of the most audacious planetary landings ever. This car-sized rover has been successfully exploring Gale crater since then. Built to conduct an investigation of modern and ancient environments on the surface of Mars, this talk will describe the rover’s explorations and adventures, and discuss the latest findings.

Everyone is welcome. Free for members, £2 on the door for non-members. Followed by refreshments (that means smoothies, cheese and grapes!).
