The Roving Search for Life on Mars: Upcoming Talk with Dr. John Grotzinger

Finally, the Hot Science talk everyone has been waiting for! UT Austin’s Environmental Science Institute welcomes Dr. John Grotzinger, the lead scientist for Curiosity’s mission to explore Mars’ past climate and geology. NASA’s third Mars rover “Curiosity” is an extraordinary machine that carries the biggest, most advanced suite of instruments for scientific studies ever sent to the Martian surface. Dr. Grotzinger will describe what the rover has discovered since landing on the Red Planet, and how the Mars Science Laboratory on-board Curiosity will continue our search for signs of extraterrestrial life there. As always, this talk is free to the public, and you can also join us through our LIVE  web-cast on the night of the event.
