SAS to Discuss "Robot Invasion"

Members of the Sheboygan Astronomical Society will present a free program at Mead Library on Saturday, Feb. 21, at 1:30 p.m. Manned spaceflight has decreased dramatically, so Earth-based space agencies have turned to robots to do the exploring of the heavens for humans. Randy Griffin and Diane Van Minsel will discuss what's new and coming in space exploration. After the presentation, SAS members will hold a telescope clinic for those who need help with their telescopes.
