Shattered and Steaming Mars a Recipe for Life?

Event has passed.

Programs: CU on the Weekend

Presented by Stephen Mojzsis, Professor, Geology

Professor Mojzsis will discuss his new research on whether life on Mars was possible. Ancient Mars was a battered place, pelted by comets and asteroids that melted and fractured its crust and covered large areas with intense heat and shattered rocks. This may sound pretty inhospitable, but impact-induced heating may have melted near-surface ice and made hot spring systems, forming an environment where life could take hold.

The lecture is in English and no registration is required. The presentation is part of CU on the Weekend, which is free and open to the public. Classroom opens 30 minutes before start time. Seating is limited to the first 200 people.
