Remembering Ray Bradbury: NASA’s JPL recalls his last visit to the labs

If there is a thing Ray Bradbury is most closely associated with in the world of Science Fiction, it is Mars. From The Martian Chronicles to Mars is Heaven!, Bradbury seems to have had a life-long love for the Red Planet.

And in 2007, Ray Bradbury visited the labs where his dreams began to come true, in NASA’s Jet Propulsion Labs, where the Mars Rover’s command and control are. On June 8th, JPL released this video of Ray’s visit (note: for some reason, video takes a while to load, sometimes):
