Mars was not always red: Berkeley experts discuss Mars exploration

Thursday, April 22, 2021
The recent trio of spacecraft arriving at Mars from the US, China, and United Arab Emirates has thrust the "Red Planet" into the public imagination once again. In particular, the landing of NASA's Perseverance rover reignited an exuberance for planetary exploration in millions around the world. Could life have ever existed on Mars? What have we learned from previous missions? How will this research impact science for generations to come?

Please join us to hear from UC Berkeley experts, who will share their experience with space exploration and Mars science, providing us with insights into what lies ahead.
