The public and new members are cordially invited to attend. The meeting will begin with a fellowship meal at 9:00 AM followed by Roger’s lecture at 10:00 AM. Breakfast potluck contributions are welcome.

Roger Weins is a scientist at Los Alamos National Laboratory and the Principal Investigator for the ChemCam on the Curiosity rover. He was responsible for several instruments for NASA's Genesis mission. In his book, Red Rover: Inside the Story of Robotic Space Exploration, from Genesis to the Mars Rover Curiosity (redroverbook.com), Roger shares the story of his involvement in NASA's efforts to journey across space and explore another planet for signs of life. He discusses the challenges of doing robotic space exploration on a budget, and the elation of being able to help science look for answers to some of humankind's biggest questions.

The American Scientific Affiliation (www.asa3.org) was founded in 1941 as an international network of Christians in the sciences. Members of the ASA are united by a belief in orthodox Christianity, as defined by the Apostles’ and Nicene creedsand a commitment to excellence in science. The ASA is not an advocacy organization. Where there is honest disagreement on an aspect of science, Christian faith, or the relationship between the two, the ASA strives to create a safe environment in which dialogue can flourish, and diverse or even contrasting ideas can be discussed with courtesy and respect.
