NASA ~ The Mars Exploration Program and the planet Vulcan (FAMILY Space Workshop II)
   Sunday, July 28th, 2:00-3:30 PM at the Woodbury Senior Center (adjacent to the Highland Mills Branch of the Library)

Join us for this second “Universe of Stories” workshop with John Fontana, and expand your planetary knowledge!  Mars, the red planet, has captivated our imaginations for decades.  NASA began planning for spacecraft research in 1993, when the Mars Exploration Program (MEP) was formed.  See models of the Rovers that were sent into space to gather data to educate us about this mysterious sphere.  BONUS:  we will learn about the 2018 discovery of the planet Vulcan, too!  (You don’t have to be a Star Trek fan to enjoy this exciting and inspiring presentation…)   Please PRE-Register via Woodbury Public Library’s website: http://www.woodburypubliclibrary.org/ or in person at the Rushmore Memorial Branch, 16 County Route 105, Highland Mills, NY 10930 or by telephone (845) 928-6162
