The Rover Party goes on stage! Planetary Radio Live returns to Southern California Public Radio's Crawford Family Forum to celebrate Opportunity's 10th anniversary on Mars. Host Mat Kaplan will be joined on stage by Planetary Society CEO Bill Nye the Science Guy for a conversation with:
Jim Bell, Mars Exploration Rover Camera Lead and Author of "Postcards From Mars"
John Grotzinger, Mars Science Laboratory Project Scientist
Rob Manning, Chief Engineer for the Mars Science Laboratory
Steve Squyres, Mars Exploration Rover Principal Investigator
We'll talk about the accomplishments of both Opportunity and her sister, Spirit, and the legacy of these two little explorers that have gone far beyond their creators' dreams.
Society Senior Editor and Planetary Evangelist Emily Lakdawalla will present stunning images of Mars, and Director of Projects Bruce Betts will join Mat for a live edition of What's Up. Also returning by popular demand, the great gypsy swing band, Hedgehog Swing!
