Join Emily Lakdawalla and Casey Dreier on Thursday, January 3 for a chat with Jim Bell, a scientist who wears many hats. Among other things, he's the team lead for the Pancam color cameras on the Spirit and Opportunity rovers; he's a member of the Curiosity science team; and he's the esteemed President of the Planetary Society's Board of Directors. We'll talk about the great science being done by both Curiosity and Opportunity, and about what's in store for the future. I'll embed the video below when we go live at noon Pacific time (2000 UT), and you can come back here after the show's over to watch the replay.
