Description

Living on Mars: Can We Do It? Should We Do It?

Dr. Herbert V Frey
Presentation: More than 50 years of spacecraft exploration of Mars has been driven mostly by the prospect that we might find life there, but also more recently by the possibility we might some day live there. The current Mars environment is not very hospitable for life, either indigenous or invasive, but earlier Mars did have conditions that would support at least simple life, and technology may make it possible for humans to have a permanent presence there. This talk will look at some of the many challenges for life and living on Mars, and the possible conflict that could arise if these two collide.

Speaker: Dr. Herb Frey is the former Chief of the Planetary Geology, Geophysics and Geochemistry Lab at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center. During his 38 year career there he did research in both Earth and Planetary Science, with a special emphasis on the early crustal evolution of the Moon and Mars, and what it taught us about the Earth.
