Mars 2020, or There and Back Again

Mars 2020, or There and Back Again

November 16 & 17

Four years from now, NASA and JPL will once again rove the red planet with Mars 2020. This time mission objectives include exploration of extremely ancient habitats to enable the collection of a set of samples that could one day be returned to Earth. Analysis of carefully selected samples from Mars in laboratories on Earth would transform planetary science and the search for extraterrestrial life.

The speaker will discuss the evolving scientific strategy for Mars 2020, including the impending selection of a landing site.

Speaker:
Ken Williford is the Deputy Project Scientist for Mars 2020 and directs the JPL Astrobiogeochemistry Laboratory (abcLab).
