Seminar Abstract:

2021 has been an exciting year for Mars exploration. Four new spacecraft from three different countries arrived at Mars since the New Year—two that are orbiting the planet, one that has landed on the surface, and one that will land soon. At the same time, both government and private entities are planning for human exploration of Mars. What makes Mars such a compelling place to explore? What are we trying to learn and why?
