On Saturday, October 20, Mars Exploration Program Director Doug McCuistion participated on a virtual "Google+ Hangout" live link to celebrate NASA's Mars activities with Glenelg, Scotland residents.

Glenelg, a small village located in northwest Scotland, along with the 10th Astronomer Royal of Scotland, hosted a full day of events honoring the historic journey of NASA's Curiosity rover to a place informally called "Glenelg" in Gale Crater on Mars.

Former NASA astronaut Dr. Bonnie Dunbar attended as a speaker and participated in the ribbon-cutting ceremony. The "Space, Stars and Mars" event featured a range of space-themed activities that included McCuistion's social-media-style presentation about Curiosity's two-year mission.

McCuistion's presentation and humor engaged an enthusiastic audience of several hundred people attending the event.
