07 Jan HWS Speaker Series: Is There (Was There?) Life on Mars?
Astronomer Percival Lowell thought there were irrigation canals on Mars. Mariner missions, Viking missions, and the Mars Exploration Rover missions have changed and expanded our knowledge. The Mars Rover Curiosity is still sending information and now the Mars InSight Mission has landed. There is no water on the surface, but what about below?
Professor Nan Crystal Arens will review what we know and where else in the solar system exobiologists are looking to see if we are not alone.
Dr. Arens is a biologist and a geologist. Her studies include plant evolution and extinction.
