Join us for a fascinating look back at the results of previous NASA Mars Missions, what we have learned, and what they mean for our future exploration of the Red Planet.

Our Speakers:

Annie holds an undergraduate degree from the University of Houston in Communications, and also holds a graduate degree in Space Sciences from the University of North Dakota where she focused her studies on human spaceflight. Her favorite topics to speak on as a Solar System Ambassador are human spaceflight, any of the multitudes of NASA missions. Annie hopes to inspire people to look up to the stars with hope and to learn more about the advances in our space program.

He is a longtime volunteer at the Houston Museum of Natural Science's George Observatory, conducting classroom presentations during public star parties and assisting with the operation of the domed telescopes.
