NASA: Rover Landing and the Search for Life On Mars
Event times (ET)
11am - 12 pm
We were all glued to our screens as the one metric ton Perseverance rover touched down safely on the surface of Mars. The Perseverance rover is designed to better understand the geological history of Mars and seek signs of ancient life. The mission will collect and store a set of rock and soil samples that will be returned to Earth for detailed analysis. It will also test new technology to benefit future robotic and human exploration of Mars – the Ingenuity helicopter. This talk will give you an opportunity to talk to one of the key creators of this mission and discuss NASA’s future plans for the Red Planet.
