Over the last 50 years NASA has sent an armada of spacecraft to explore
Mars. Mars is much colder and drier than Utah, however the two share some

surprising similarities. Come for an update on the most recent findings from the

spacecraft in operation on the surface and in orbit around the red planet.

Dr. Candice Hansen-Koharcheck is a senior scientist at the Planetary Science

Institute, and she works on NASA robotic spacecraft missions. She has a Ph.D. in

Planetary Science from UCLA. Currently she is a member of the flight teams for the

Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter and the Mars Trace Gas Orbiter, at Mars, and the Juno

mission, in orbit around Jupiter.
