Get caught up on the rover Curiosity's exciting exploration of Mars! Examination of the Martian atmosphere by the rover confirms that some meteorites that have dropped to earth really are from the red planet.
In February 2013, Curiosity drilled into a rock called "John Klein" and then analyzed the sample material with its on-board scientific instruments. On March 12, NASA announced that the analyses show conditions on Mars were once favorable for life! Join us to learn more about this breakthrough discovery. On Mars, as on Earth, sometimes things can take on an unusual appearance. A case in point is a shiny-looking rock seen in a recent image from NASA's Curiosity Mars rover. Curiosity has made a discovery! What could it be? Why are JPL scientists keeping this breaking news classified for now? Exploratorium host and Mars enthusiast Robyn Higdon and Ron Hipshman will give you a refresher on Curiosity's SAM instrument and will discuss the process that scientists at JPL must endure before releasing this ground breaking discovery to the public. In 1997, the Exploratorium opened the Phyllis C. Wattis Webcast Studio on the museum floor, linking Internet users to live museum events and to live events at remote locations. In this video you can explore the early days of webcasting at the Exploratorium. Exploratorium host and Mars enthusiast Robyn Higdon gives us a tour of the Mars Science Laboratory Mission thus far, what the Curiosity rover is doing now, and what to look forward to in the months to come. En el programa de hoy, científicos del Exploratorium presentarán ejemplos de extremófilos – microrganismos que viven en condiciones extremas en la Tierra. Como Marte es un ambiente extremo, la pregunta sigue siendo, ¿podría el planeta rojo haber sustentado alguna forma de vida microbiana? Infórmate en nuestro webcast en vivo. We'll be joined in studio by a University of Washington marine geologist to discuss the deployment of a deep sea observatory off the coast of Oregon. Like an expeditions to Mars, this work is the result of years of mapping, planning, and complex engineering and science to explore hard-to-reach places. Únete a los científicos del Exploratorium e infórmate de las últimas hazañas del astromóvil Curiosidad que está paseando por el planeta Marte e investigando la posibilidad de que haya condiciones hospitalarias para sustentar la vida extraterrestre. In today's program, Exploratorium host Ron Hipschman will give a quick update on Curiosity and then revisit the MER rovers, Spirit and Opportunity.
