Guest speaker and author Ken Croswell will talk about the red planet and his new book Magnificent Mars. Owen Gingerich, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, says that "Ken Croswell has done it again! By combining specially processed images of Mars with an elegant and informative text, he offers us a feast for the mind as well as the eyes." Robert Zubrin, author of The Case for Mars and President of the Mars Society comments: "At last, a work that synthesizes the latest discoveries on the red planet into an accessible yet accurate form. Magnificent Mars is a magnificent book." Croswell is also the author of several highly acclaimed books, including Magnificent Universe and See the Stars: Your First Guide to the Night Sky. He earned his Ph.D. in astronomy from Harvard University and lives in Berkeley, California.
