Library - Instruction Room - 3-314

Celebrate National Chemistry Week on Tuesday, October 23 at 7pm ET by gathering a group for a mission to explore the chemistry of Mars! Join us live as our panel of experts shares what we know about the planet and the steps that need to be taken to safely send men and women to walk on its surface. Discover the challenges of long-term space travel and the materials, biochemistry, and astrochemistry that will help make this mission possible.

What Your Group Will Learn

  • How the Curiosity Rover has revealed the geologic history of Mars, and how this knowledge can help inform us about the environments that existed on the surface of Earth and Mars during the time when life evolved
  • The unique challenges of long term space travel and a profile of the current work to ensure that humans can survive the voyage
  • What is the current state of recycle waste research that will be able to sustain valuable material using biopharmaceutical production
