Footsteps to Mars: “Target – The Moons of Mars”

Thursday, March 2, 3:00 pm EST


Senior NASA leadership has often observed that humans are closer to their first mission to Mars than ever before in history.  As part of current thinking of human exploration of the Red Planet, a number of scientists and engineers argue that the planet’s moons are exciting goals in their own right.


Join Tony Darnell, Harley Thronson and Alberto Conti as they discuss with Pascal Lee (Mars Institute, SETI Institute, & NASA Ames Research Center) the ‘how’ and ‘why’ of exploring the moons of Mars.


The best place to watch the hangout will be on YouTube, broadcast on the Deep Astronomy Channel.
