Science Café Examines Mars Exploration and Mars Sample Returns

April 14 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Stetson University’s Gillespie Museum hosts its final conversation in the spring 2022 Science Café/Armchair Geology series, “The Curiosity to Explore and the Perseverance to Rove: A Decade of Discoveries on Mars,” with astrobiologist and geobiologist Amy Williams, PhD.

In her talk, Williams will examine the paths that the Curiosity and Perseverance rovers have taken that are enabling Mars Sample Return in the future. Her research focuses on the interaction between microbial life, the geochemical environment and the rock record on Earth, in order to recognize habitable environments and potentially preserved microbial life on Mars and the outer world moons.

At 4 p.m., just before her Science Café/Armchair Geology presentation at 5 p.m., Williams will be on the porch of the Rinker Environmental Learning Center for coffee, desserts and conversation with undergraduates.

To register for either event, contact the museum at gillespiemuseum@stetson.edu or 386.822.7330 to reserve a seat or to receive the link to the presentation on Zoom.
