Program at college will bring Mars to Barstow The Desert Dispatch

The Barstow Community College gymnasium will be transformed into Mars this weekend during a hands-on NASA workshop open to the public. During “Barstow Space Days,” residents can see a lightweight version of the Mars Exploration Rover in action, view mission holographic images, and learn about more than 18 past and current space missions — like Genesis, Voyager, and Galileo — from mission personnel.
