I am doing my level best to remain entirely ignorant of Planetfest planning, so that I can avoid any responsibility for it! So if the amount of information on our website doesn't satisfy you (it shouldn't, it's pretty thin right now) then send email to tps@planetary.org with your questions. The more you hassle them about certain things now, the more likely those things are to come to pass smile.gif

Emily, you are doing great and you have the full support (if needed) from your French members ! Warmest regards, VM wheel.gif wheel.gif wheel.gif

The only problem is that the MSL lands early Monday morning (August 6) for us, around 5:00 am ECT and that our National museums are closed in Paris at this time. It's difficult for us to have them open at night for the Public, especially for safety measures (we need a minimum of security and at least 1 fireman), and we are working hard on this. I'll keep you informed mars.gif
According to that page, the landing time is just after 10pm Pacific Time. This corresponds to 6 am GMT, or 8h in the morning of the 6th august for french people. This is not that early, and some museums open at this time. smile.gif

Finally we found our auditorium for our MSL/Curiosity landing event on Monday August 6 early morning (06:30 am Paris time).
It will be located at Verneuil, the city which shares with Les Mureaux the Ariane V launcher plant, just 30 km west from the center of Paris.
It's fully equipped with all you can dream about to make big events (like the Von Karman Auditorium at JPL...).
This will be a free event and open to the public.
It will be organized in cooperation with the French section of the Mars Society + Societe Astronomique de France (the corresponding member of TPS in France)
