Dr. Ashwin Vasavada, of NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, will give a free, illustrated, non-technical talk on:”When Mars Was Like Earth: Five Years of Exploration with NASA’s Curiosity Mars Rover”in the Smithwick Theater at Foothill College, in Los Altos.The talk is part of the Silicon Valley Astronomy Lecture Series at Foothill College, now in its 18th year.More than five years after its dramatic arrival at Mars, the car-sized Curiosity rover continues to reveal Mars as a once-habitable planet. Early in Mars' history, rivers and lakes persisted for millions of years and created the landforms that Curiosity explores today.  The rover is climbing the foothills of a martian mountain, where rock layers have recorded the passage of time and a changing climate.  This talk will cover the latest findings from the mission, the challenges of remote robotic exploration, and what lies ahead.

Foothill College is just off the El Monte Road exit from Freeway 280 in Los Altos.

The Red Altar Project is about six teenagers who crossed the ocean from China, crashed in the Carmel Bay of California, and began the fishing industry in the Monterey Bay area in 1850. In the face of anti-Chinese legislation, media propaganda with racist caricatures, and outright violence, they persevered with courage and ingenuity in an effort to lay down roots in their volatile new home.
