Call to order and introduction of tonight's guest speaker:
Clyde Simpson, Observatory Coordinator, Department of Astronomy, Cleveland Museum of Natural History

Ground rovers and orbiting spacecraft have peeled back many of the secrets of the Red Planet's desert landscape.
We've even got pieces of Mars here on Earth - meteorite samples blasted from the planet's surface.
What more are we looking for, and what are the prospects that we'll go there in person any time soon?
