Why Return to the Columbia Hills? | The Planetary Society

This is an awesome blog entry written by one of students at Cardinal Gibbons High School. Alex’s passion for Space Exploration is amazing. Due to Alex’s passion we have formed a Space Exploration Club at school. The club recently Skyped with Dr. Ming. It was a great opportunity for our students.

Real Martian Explorers…just what does it take?” This interactive presentation will engage your students as they interact with Doug Ming, a NASA scientist within NASA Astromaterials Research and Exploration Science (NASA ARES) at the NASA Johnson Space Center. Doug will talk about the exploration of Mars, the Martian Movie, and what it might take to enable humans to live and work on Mars as real Martian explorers.

Where should NASA’s next Mars rover, the Mars 2020 sample caching mission, land? One site under consideration is Spirit’s old stomping ground, the Columbia Hills.
