sunsite and PlanetFest 97

ibiblio logo
In 1997, we landed on Mars and sunsite was there at the Planetary Society’s PlanetFest 97. Sally discovered this YouTube clip from PlanetFest:

On July 5, 1997, Dan Goldin officially commemorated the Pathfinder Lander as Carl Sagan Station at Planetfest ’97 in Pasadena, California. On behalf of the Sagan and Druyan families, Ann Druyan spoke to the event’s attendees to express her gratitude

The NYTimes has a great write-up on Sagan and Druyan ten years later in today’s Science section.

Whilst at PlanetFest, we met John Graham, whose technology we’re using right now for the GrindCam!

Help us plan for the 15th Year of ibiblio/sunsite here (blog) and here (wiki)
