Extra-Terrestrial Geology; Exploring Mars As An Earth-bound Astronaut
Speaker: Dr. Natasha Stephen (University of Plymouth)
Dr. Natasha Stephen is a planetary scientist studying the origin and geological evolution of bodies within our Solar System, including Mars, the Moon and asteroids. Natasha uses samples returned from the Red Planet to study past volcanic eruptions on Mars, and uses spacecraft data from satellites and Mars rovers to link these samples to the Martian surface. Both NASA and ESA have sent recent missions to Mars, and there is a new Mars rover, Perseverance, about to touch down in the coming days… So, join us as we explore what we already know about the Red Planet, and what we have yet to discover!
