Curious about the mission of the largest Mars rover to ever roam the planet? Curiosity has been on Mars about 7 months now – what has it been doing? Why? What will it plan to do? Join Dr. Thomas Tretter as he takes us on a virtual spaceship to follow the Curiosity mission, whose main goal is to explore if Mars could have ever supported microbial life. Experience the process by which scientists can measure the chemical elements in the Martian samples collected by Curiosity. Jump back into the virtual spaceship to visually explore the larger context – out beyond the Milky Way galaxy – of the intensifying search for extraterrestrial life.
