The Lunar and Planetary Institute is pleased to conduct this free, 30 minute virtual program for families and children. We will connect participants with a Mars scientist and a virtual demonstration, all from home. Dr. Bedford will discuss volcanic processes that provide insight into the ancient and modern geology of Mars. As part of the demonstration, participants will compare the characteristics of Mars and Earth images.
Dr. Bedford is a Mars Scientist who studies sedimentary and volcanic processes that provide insight into the ancient and it’s modern geology. She is a collaborator on the Mars Curiosity Rover’s CheMin and ChemCam instruments, and a member of the SAND-E Mars analog mission science team.
