55 – Glen Torridon (feat. Kristen Bennett)

March 5, 2019

Curiosity recently drove down from the Vera Rubin Ridge, its home for the last year and a half, into a new clay-rich area called Glen Torridon. Planetary Scientist Kristen Bennett joins Jake to talk about what this new area is like and what questions we hope to answer in the next chapter of this rover’s mission.

Rosalind Franklin

ESA recently announced that the upcoming ExoMars 2020 rover will be named for the pioneering British DNA scientist, Rosalind Franklin. Just as Franklin sought to understand the smallest signs of life, so too will her titular rover as it explores Mars. We’re celebrating this announcement with a new t-shirt design, which you can get in our shop now!

    Hi Jake,
    I’ve been enjoying your podcast for around the last year, but the podcast player I use PlayerFM cannot download this latest episode.

    It looks like the url in the rss feed for ep55 is incorrect, it currently looks like: ‘enclosure url=”Ep55.mp3″‘, it should look more like ‘enclosure url=”https://media.blubrry.com/wemartians/content.blubrry.com/wemartians/Ep55.mp3″‘

    Many thanks and keep up the good work.
