LPL at the Tucson Festival of Books

LPL at the Tucson Festival of Books

On March 10 and 11, the UA campus hosted the Tucson Festival of Books. The Festival was bigger than ever and LPL had a great presence this year.

The Kuiper Space Sciences lecture hall hosted several talks, including two "Mars 101" lectures by HiRISE EPO Manager Ari Spinoza.

OSIRIS-REx principal investigator Dante Lauretta lectured about the mission at the Science Cafe.

At the Science City venue, located on the mall in front of the Kuiper building, LPL volunteers hosted two hands-on activities: impact cratering and meteorites. The volunteers report interacting with over 1,000 visitors over the weekend. LPL is proud to have helped make the Festival of Books the success that it was. We are looking forward to next year's event!
