Join Exploratorium Senior Scientist Paul Doherty as he gives us an update on Mars and examines the possibility of an upcoming asteroid collision with the red planet!
Learn about ongoing missions to Mars and the long history of Mars exploration! Beginning in August 2012, we’ll present a series of webcasts about the Mars Science Laboratory mission and the newest rover, Curiosity. In over 30 previous webcasts, we’ve reported on the activities and discoveries of the Mars Exploration Rovers, Spirit and Opportunity, and the Mars Phoenix Lander. We also explore our changing perceptions of the red planet and envision how a human being would experience Mars.
