For those of you near Denver, Colorado, the Geological Society of America Annual Meeting is occurring on Tuesday the 9th at 7:30-9:00 PM at the Colorado Convention Center Ballroom in downtown Denver. No registration is required and it's free. Why is it interesting?

Well, lead Mars researchers from across the nation will be presenting speeches and answering questions from the audience. These include Dr. Michael Malin, designer of the Mars Global Surveyor camera, Dr. Plaut, who's heading the MARSIS component of the Mars Express mission, Dr. Christensen, principal investigator for the THEMIS instrument on the Mars Odyssey spacecraft, and Dr. McCleese, chief scientist of JPL's Mars program. Most notable, perhaps, is Dr. Steve Squyres, the head of the wildly successful Mars Exploration Rovers. Or perhaps I'm biased because I now work under him. Regardless, it's sure to be a very enlightening and enjoyable time if you can attend.
