04/24/2018 - Mission To Mars Celebration At Chadron Public Library
Don’t miss a fascinating planetary geology event! Chadron Public Library will be celebrating the upcoming Insight Mission to Mars launch. Dr. Mike Leite, Geosciences professor at Chadron State College, will talk about upcoming Mars missions and how student research is contributing to NASA planetary science and exploration. There will be some fun hands-on activities including making edible models of planets and examining rocks similar to ones scientists expect to find on Mars. All ages are welcome, and space is limited. The event will be held from 4:00-5:00 pm (with extra time for questions) on Tuesday, April 24, 2018. Chadron Public Library is one of 75 public libraries selected to be part of the NASA@ My Library initiative to engage public audiences nationwide in informal and lifelong learning with the excitement of NASA exploration and discovery.
