January 3 - The Cassini spacecraft, deployed to outer space to take more than half a million photos discovered liquid water, and possibly life, on two of Saturn's moons, presented by NASA Solar System Ambassador Tim Pinkney.
February 7 - Military historian Ken Nielsen will tell the story of aircraft production in California during WWII.
At our January meeting NASA Solar System Ambassador Tim Pinkney will give a talk about NASA's Cassini spacecraft mission exploring Saturn for the last 13 years. The probe's data and imagery reshaped scientists' understanding of the ringed planet and its 60-plus moons. Cassini discovered liquid water nearly a billion miles from the Sun with potentially habitable oceans. It also discovered seas of liquid methane on Saturn's biggest satellite, Titan. Before this find, Earth had been the only known world with bodies of stable liquid on its surface.
