Rick Larsen visits Western's Mars Lab

U.S. Representative Rick Larsen visited the Western Mars Lab last week and got a tour of the facility from WWU's own Melissa Rice, a member of the Mars 2020 rover team. In the photo at right, Rice shows off WWU's goniometer, a device which allows for Mars scientists to better understand the data sent back from the rover as it analyzes samples on the planet's surface.
