Speakers: Professor Rolf-Dietmar Herzberg, University of Liverpool

Human exploration of the solar system has so far been limited to near-earth space. However, several initiatives for human exploration of Mars are being discussed, partially through private initiatives, and the idea has captured the imagination not least through popular films. This talk will cover the scientific challenges inherent in a manned mars mission and try to separate fact from fiction.

Refreshments from 18:30.
