ROADS Challenge “Meet a NASA Expert” — Steve Ruff

The third of our opportunities for ROADS teams to Meet a NASA Expert will take place on Wednesday, Jan. 22! We’re pleased to have Steve Ruff join us. Steve is a planetary geologist specializing in the study of Mars, looking at its history and the potential for past habitability. He has been an active member of the science team for Opportunity and is a member of the Mars Exploration Program Advisory Group to study the science benefits and requirements of a Mars sample return mission. He has expensive experience in laboratory investigations as well as field work that aid in the analysis of the data coming form various Mars missions.

There will be time for Q&A with students after Steve’s talk!
