Mankind, Machines, and the Moon, part 2 Lunar Exploration

The next meeting will be at 7:00 p.m. Monday, November 20 at Lake Hills Library located at the corner of 156th SE and Lake Hills Boulevard.

John McLaren, Ambassador to the Solar System for NASA will present Part 2 of his talk that he gave last May on: Mankind, Machines and the Moon. Forty-five years ago on December 15th Gene Cernan became the last human to walk on the Moon. However, lunar exploration is on-going. Since the Apollo 17 mission, 6 national groups have sent 20 probes to fly by, orbit, impact, land, drive on, or return samples from the Moon. We will discuss what we have learned about the Moon from these and look at upcoming missions and planned adventures.

The book drawing will be for - "Chasing the Sun" by Richard Cohen. There'll be refreshments.
The follwing meeting will be December 19th at Bellevue College's Willard Geer Planetarium.

Seattle Astronomy Blog:
Greg Scheiderer writes a very informative blog site about local Astronomy events and happenings in the Seattle area. He is also an EAS member. He can almost always be found at the Museum of Flight events and lectures taking notes and asking questions. So be sure to add his blog to your Astronomy reading list. Like most blog sites, you can even set up an RSS feed to keep up on the latest entries.

He also has started a calender on the site, and he'll have a lot of good info about just about everything astronomy related on that. All local clubs, museums, and star parties.

Don't forget our blog site! Remember, EAS does have a blog site with a lot of the latest space, astronomy, some aviation, and whatever else looks good to share. President Tom Gwilym writes the blog and usually has a new entry or two every week, depending on what is going on that looks interesting. The blog is very easy to update, so there is more new goodies to read there than on the main EAS site (this one you are looking at) so make sure to check that out now and then or you can even set up an RSS feed when something new is posted.
