Coming in May: Wonder what it’s like on Mars? In a word, cold! While we see storms and snow on Mars, like we do on Earth, the red planet’s very thin atmosphere makes things very, very different. Tony Rice, NASA Solar System Ambassador, will explain all you want to know about weather on Mars. Participants will also build a weather instrument to monitor our atmosphere here on Earth. Mark your calendar for Friday, May 24 at 5:00 p.m. to attend “How’s the Weather on Mars?”
