In 2008, NASA launched their Phoenix Lander to take measurements on Mars. This episode, Drs. Doug Cobos and Colin Campbell talk about their experiences working with NASA and the Jet Propulsion Lab (JPL), what they were measuring, and what their data can tell us about Mars.

Tune in to learn:

  • The challenges involved in creating sensors for extraterrestrial environments
  • What measurements NASA wanted to learn
  • The difficulties of remote controlling devices on Mars
  • What their results tell us about Mars
