Presenter: Dr Jeanette Dixon AM

Note: 40 tickets available

A journey to Mars in the near future is being considered by international governments and private organisations. This presentation explains what life is like for an astronaut in space today, and the requirements/dangers of human survival during future spaceflight to Mars. Features of Mars with new discoveries, how to possibly survive on Mars, and misconceptions related to Mars are explained. Useful ideas, fascinating facts, and simple analogies for the classroom provide a deeper understanding of space travel and the planet Mars. The presentation finishes with exciting satellite images of places on Earth and access to NASA’s disk of lunar samples collected by Apollo astronauts on Missions 15, 16, and 17.
