The Third Landing Site Workshop for the Mars 2003 MER Rovers will be held in Pasadena, CA, from April 9th-11th, 2002. The meeting venue and program will be finalized in 2002.

The purpose of the Workshop will be to hear summaries of the ongoing analysis of the sites remaining under consideration and to provide the opportunity to fully discuss their suitability in terms of safety and science potential. The objective of the workshop is to make a recommendation to the MER Project and Project Science Group regarding the science and safety prioritization of the sites.

Continued input from the science community is critical to identifying the optimal landing sites for the MERs. We look forward to your involvement in this process and hope to see you in April!

John Grant and Matt Golombek
Co-Chairs, Mars Landing Site Steering Committee
