Mars expert Lee Saper joined YTA to catch us up on his latest thesis research on our neighbor planet. We learned about the role he played in helping determine where the the next Mars rover will (not) land; that while rivers and lakes are cool, the real possibility of finding remnants of life on Mars is in researching the subsurface; and how a trip to Iceland turned him into a planetary geologist. He told us about the marriage of sustainability and space, and how we as a human race are already on Mars.
That’s our boy above making contact with our extraterrestrial neighbors. Hit play and let him educate you on all things Mars. Without further ado, the totally awesome, Lee Saper!
