Meet Mars 2020, NASA’s Next Rover.
Nov. 16 at 7 p.m. PT (10 p.m. ET, 0300 UTC)
Soon, NASA and JPL will once again rove the Red Planet with Mars 2020. Its mission objectives include exploration of extremely ancient Martian habitats and 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. Join us as we discuss the evolving scientific strategy for Mars 2020, including the selection of a landing site.
