DDO Astronomy Speakers Night: Mars – an Active World? (ONLINE)

Mars - An Active World
Friday, July 23, 2021 - 9:30pm to 11:00pm

Join us, from the comfort of your home! This program will feature live-stream views from the DDO's 74-Inch telescope (weather permitting). Explore breaking news from space and current research into what lies beyond our home planet! Each night, we’ll take a virtual tour of the DDO, hear from our speakers about their own amazing space research, and ask them all our questions about what they know and what they’re discovering.

This time, we will be joined by Vidhya Ganesh Rangarajan, who will highlight the various types of active processes we see on the Martian surface, explain what we think might be causing these, and illustrate how similar or different these processes are to what we see here on Earth.

Only one registration per household is required. Please register for this program by 5:00pm on Wednesday, July 21, 2021. Prior to the start of the program you will be emailed information on the virtual program links and any specific information relating to your program.
