Our speaker will come from NASA. Todd Barber, a JPL senior propulsion engineer, who has worked on the Cassini and some recent Mars rover missions, will be talking to us virtually about  the Mars 2020 Perseverance mission.  We will have a COVID safe setup and all attenders must print their name and address for COVID safety reasons. FSCJ is requesting/suggesting this and the wearing of masks and distance rules. This is the only way we could get an in person meeting.
