Planetary Society Hangout: Jan 17th, 2013 - Drilling on Mars with Joel Hurowitz

Thursday, Jan 17th, at noon PST/2000 UT

Join Emily Lakdawalla with special guest Dr. Joel Hurowitz, a JPL scientist working on Curiosity's sample acquisition team. He'll talk us through Curiosity's upcoming drill process and how it gathers samples of the Martian soil. Viewers can ask questions via the comments on the Google+ event, the comments on the YouTube URL, or using the hashtag #planetarylive on Twitter.

If you can't watch live, we'll post the recording after we're done. You can also submit questions in advance!

The video player is posted below, but it will not play until the scheduled time of the hangout.
