I love when my job entails hosting awesome crazy-smart scientists! Got to spend the whole day with brilliant people studying our planet and others, including Dr. Pascal Lee, a planetary scientist with NASA and the Mars Institute. Thanks, Dr. Lee! #marsinstitute#missionmars#librarianlife
Mars is a rocky planet covered in red dust, with temperatures of -80 degrees Fahrenheit. The fourth planet from the sun and our neighbor, is about 34 million miles from us at its closest point from Earth (55 Million km) and is currently the main aim for space exploration, as well as one of our future homes!
