July CAS meeting is on!

Just to confirm that there will be a CAS meeting in July.  We will meet at the usual venue on Tuesday 31st July at 7.30pm and we will have some exciting presentations for you:

- Chris Darwin will give us an update on the Higgs Boson discovery announced last week, hopefully in layman's terms that we can all understand, along with other news items for July

- Stuart Atkinson will be our main speaker with a theme of Oppy @ Endeavour, an update on the Mars Rover situation, including a look ahead to the landing of the new Mars Science Laboratory (MSL)

Two spacecraft engineers stand with a group of vehicles providing a comparison of three generations of Mars rovers developed at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, Calif. The setting is JPL's Mars Yard testing area.
