  1. Roving on Mars, Nov 15th, 1:00 PM- 2:30 PM : Advanced rovers have been exploring Mars for over a decade and have made amazing discoveries during that time. How did the planet evolve? Could Mars have supported life in its past? Answers are both elusive and tantalizing. In that time, the Curiosity and Perseverance rovers have been seeking answers to these and other questions. We even have a small helicopter scouting the path ahead of Perseverance! In this program, NASA Solar System Ambassador, Frank O'Brien, will talk about the discoveries the rovers have made, the incredible technologies used, and plans to bring back samples of the Red Planet!  Attention Adult Patrons: You do not have to be an Edison resident to attend. All are welcome! Library card and PIN number are not required to register for Adult Programs. Please register here
