In August 1975, the Viking 1 spacecraft was launched into space towards Mars and nearly a year later, the spacecraft reached the planet. On July 28, 1976 the robotic arm reached out and touched the surface of Mars. Professor Geller discusses the exploration of the surface of Mars, from the Viking mission in 1976 to the current Curiosity rover on Mars and the part it all played in his own life. Join us for this intriguing talk by this very accomplished, “stellar” professor!
