The opening slide of the very engaging lecture-presentation introduced the NASA speaker Dr. Ken Kramer while a few of the audience "mill about". Dr. Kramer was a passionate and humorous speaker who made no bones about his distaste for politicians’' lack of science awareness!
OK, so mostly you just sit and listen to a presentation like this. But we did get to see three-dimensional photos from Mars which added a bit of excitement. See how excited June looks?!
Den and a little of Lee are visible in this picture. With his "expertise in astronomy" to help him, Den was able to answer several of the questions asked by the presenter. Photo by June Harden.
