Walking to Mars: What Do We Need to Learn Before We Can Live on the Red Planet?
Reunion College session presented by Joe Levy, Assistant Professor of Geology.
Is Mars the next step in human exploration of the solar system? What would it take to live and work on this "almost Earth" world, and what will future explorers need to know in order to survive martian extremes? Join Dr. Joe Levy on a journey of endurance and exploration from Earth’s remotest polar outposts to the surface of Mars.
