Speaker information

Professor Andrew Coates, UCL Mullard Space Science Laboratory

Mars is our closest hope for life beyond Earth. 3.8 billion years ago, when life was starting here, Mars was habitable, with surface water and a thick atmosphere. Now, it is cold, dry and harsh. Professor Andrew Coates discusses the ExoMars rover mission and the possibility of past or present life on Mars.
