  • 1 – 4pm MAG Outreach in the Great Hall
    • Chris Thompson, 2 tables, 2 chairs, NASA Ambassador will be discussing OSIRIS-REx mission
    • Other MAG Members, 3 tables, 6 chairs, discussing meteorites
    • Other MAG Members, 2 tables, 4 chairs, will provide hands on activities
Please RSVP for May 9th so I can give Tellus a count (and so you get free entry, if you're not a Tellus member) and they can give us adequate space to run our outreach tables.

Chris Thompson
