Mars: We’ve Been Wrong Before

Science is a long and occasionally embarrassing process. Take for example the exploration of Mars. From the natural philosophers of ancient times to the InSight Mars Lander heading to Mars today, we always have some idea of what we’ll find on Mars.

It’s Summer! Congratulations to everyone for making it through these last few frigid months. Do you know it got as cold as 37℉ in January here in Los Angeles? That’s cold! But we made it through it. With central heating, and fuzzy slippers, cocoa and stoic expressions we made it through.

Sometimes you wake up in the morning and decide you want to build a house. But you don’t just want to build any house. You want an amazing house. The Science, Technology & Patents Department has a collection of books that can help with that.
