IS MARS ALIVE? Testing Current and Past Habitability

Geronimo Villanueva
Planetary Scientist, NASA-Goddard Space Flight Center

As we prepare for the human exploration of Mars, recent insights about Mars’ past habitability are greatly assisting us in identifying the most promising research sites. In this talk, Villanueva presents the current frontiers in the exploration of planetary atmospheres and how the synergies between future space and ground astronomical assets will transform our understanding of the composition, stability and evolution of the atmospheres in the Solar System and beyond.
