 From Mars to Earth: a journey fostered by Science, Technology and  
Fascination

An International Year of Astronomy Event proudly presented by  
Australian Institute of Physics (AIP), Astronomical Society of  
Australia and the School of Mathematics and Physics at The University  
of Queensland.

You are invited to join Dr Paulo de Souza and Dr Joel Gilmore for an  
evening of discovery and discussion.

WHEN: Thursday 23 July from 6.30 pm

WHERE: Regatta Hotel - Winterford Room (Upstairs), Coronation Drive,  
Toowong

How does the Earth and Mars share a common past? What does their  
shared future hold? How have some of the incredible technological  
developments for the Martian missions already been applied on Earth in  
industry, the environment, and even archaeology. The night will  
involve lots of images and fresh scientific results, especially those  
obtained by scientists working with the NASA's Mars Exploration Rovers  
mission.

Come along, bring your questions about the NASA's Mars Exploration  
Rovers mission, and join in the discussion with Dr de Souza and Dr  
Joel Gilmore. Guests are welcome to purchase drinks at the bar  
throughout the evening.

Dr Paulo de Souza from CSIRO ICT Centre, Tasmania. Dr. Paulo de Souza  
is the Research Director at the CSIRO's Tasmanian ICT Centre and a  
collaborator scientist of the Mars Exploration Rover Project from NASA/ 
JPL/Cornell.

These events are suitable for students accompanied by an adult.
