As has happened many times before, and always on a Friday, this Friday is Mars Day at the National Air and Space Museum. Started in 1996 to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the Viking Landing on Mars on July 20th, 1976, the museum hosts a public gathering of their planetary sciences team. This means you can meet and ask questions of the people who plan the missions to Mars and other planets surrounded by the exhibits, up to and including the director of NASA’s planetary science division, Jim Green. They also have a number of special events, exhibits, and presentations on tap for all age groups, infotainment at its finest.
This isn’t very Sci-Fi or Space Cadet, but it was a wonderful stunt and I just had to include the video; Jewel doing Undercover Karaoke! Thanks to @feliciaday for the heads up on this one!
