Mars Missions 2021: Early Discoveries

*Watch Online/In person*: Three new missions arrived at Mars in February 2021, to look at weather, water and life. This lecture looks at new results from the UAE’s Hope mission, China’s Tianwen-1 and NASA’s Perseverance. It will also look at the prospects for the ESA-Russia Rosalind Franklin rover to be launched next year arriving on 10 June 2023. At this exciting time, will we soon be able to answer the greatest scientific question: are we alone in the Universe?
