A beautiful panoramic view of the varied rocks of Glenelg has been transmitted from Curiosity on Mars. But before going any further, it's time to run the first Martian sand through the soil sampling system.
I'm hosting this week's Cosmoquest Science Hour, and plan to take viewers on a virtual tour of those mountains on Curiosity's horizon, and show you where Curiosity is likely to go. Join me and Fraser Cain here at 1600 PDT / 2300 UTC Wednesday.

The Senate committee responsible for NASA is meeting this Wed, Sept 12th at 2:00pm EDT to discuss the future of Mars exploration. You can attend this event and show the Senators that the public is paying attention.
