Join us for our live online talk, as we take a look back through the annals of planetary exploration and the amazing robotic machines that humans have landed on distant worlds of the Solar System to explore their surfaces.
Space exploration sparks the imagination, but nothing captures the attention like seeing one of Earth’s robotic ambassadors moving across the landscape of another planet.
Dr Pearson’s talk begins with the Soviet lunar rovers of the 1970s that were piloted from Earth with nothing but a blurred black and white image, before moving on to the balloons that bobbed through Venus’s cloud-laden skies.
She will also look at NASA’s Mars rovers, which have spent over 20 years traversing the Red Planet’s surface attempting to answer questions about our neighbouring planet’s past climate and whether it could have once been hospitable to life.
You’ll be able to submit questions throughout the talk, and they’ll be put to the speaker in the second part of the presentation to be answered live by Dr Ezzy Pearson.
