Join the Friends on May 13th at 7:30 pm for a virtual “Raise the Bar” featuring professor Chris Herd @SpaceRockDoc (UAlberta’s local Returned Sample Science Participating Scientist) as he presents the latest update on the current Mars mission with the rover Perseverance.

Even though we are unable to meet in-person in a bar and enjoy a beverage together that doesn’t stop you from enjoying your beverage of choice during the talk. If you are looking for ideas, here is a link to a few “Mars” cocktails (we have not tested these recipes, please drink responsibly):
