The public is invited to a free talk called “Swimming in Martian Lakes: Curiosity at Gale Crater,” with Dr. Scott Guzewich in the Pickford Theater, third floor, Madison Building, Library of Congress, Washington, D.C., on April 25 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. EDT.

Guzewich is a speaker in the 2018 NASA Goddard Lectures Series at the Library of Congress. Guzewich is a research astrophysicist in the Planetary Systems Laboratory at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland.

For the past five years, NASA has been exploring the remnants of this lake with the Curiosity rover.
