Dr. Humberto Rodriguez Gutierrez
Natural Science Bldg. 210
Dr. Dowling's talk as part of the Public Astronomy Lecture Series will highlight current conditions on Mars and compare with what the planet was probably like 3 billion years ago. The audience will be encouraged to ask questions about the science versus the fiction in “The Martian” and NASA’s plans for future space exploration.
Congratulations to Dr. Dowling who is cited at the end of this Washington post article: “The weather on Mars is both totally alien and somewhat Earth-like all at once.”
