WHAT             Is it true that humans could live on Mars? Find out at the JFK Library in Vallejo during a weather and science program on Saturday January 20th, from 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Local astronomy enthusiast Jon Pannier (host of the Summer Stargazing series at Rush Ranch) will give a short talk about terraforming Mars, weather on Mars, and more. There will be fun hands-on activities for kids including crafts to take home and a green screen for you to record your very own weather report from space. Volunteers will help you make your creations and be available to explain the science behind these activities.
