Heads Up: In Our Time: Mars - Radio 4


Recommended Posts

I don't know if anyone caught this programme which went out on R4 at 9:00 am this morning but I found it very interesting. Melvin Bragg was joined by John Zarneki, Colin Pillinger and Monica Grady and the whole programme was devoted to the history, and future of Mars and it's exploration. Very enjoyable and informative 45 minutes I thought.

Colin Pillinger went to great lengths to explain why it is very difficult to land spaceships on Mars - it's to do with the thin and unpredicatable atmosphere and not the project management (of course !).
