Engineering interplanetary journeys is very complicated, so the exploration of Mars has experienced high failure rates, especially in earlier attempts to land on Martian soil. Roughly two-thirds of all spacecraft destined for Mars failed before completing their missions. And some that failed before their observations could begin. NASA has been successful in landing on Mars about seven times. The lecture will provide a very broad overview of the past mission to Mars from various countries around the world. As of 2014, there are two scientific rovers on the surface of Mars beaming signals back to Earth and five orbiters surveying the planet. To date, no sample return missions have been attempted for Mars, and one attempted return mission for Mars moon has failed. The presentation will highlight on-going status of many missions including challenges and technologies necessary to put humans on Mars.

Dr. Ravi Margasahayam er en gammel ven af UNF, og i samarbejde med VIA University College gæster han nu Danmark igen. Kom og oplev NASAs uofficielle rumambassadør, der med over 25 år bag sig altid har en god historie i ærmet. Der vil være rig mulighed for at stille spørgsmål til Ravi, f.eks. om hans tid i rumfærgeprogrammet, hans arbejde med den internationale rumstation og hans nuværende arbejde som 2019 Solar System Ambassador.

Seminaret afholdes i samarbejde med Ungdommens Naturvidenskabelige Forening.
