Webinar: The Martian Terrain: Lander & rover mission

Landing on Mars is one of the most challenging goals in planetary science. Understanding the Martian environment is crucial to how lander and rover missions are designed.

During this webinar, Jacqueline Campbell, PhD student at UCL's Mullar Space Science Laboratory, gave us an insight into her research and details of the Martian environment pertinent to mission success, and how understanding those details inform landing site selection from a logistical and scientific perspective. From atmospheric science to engineering, and 3D modelling to geochemistry, she covered what makes a mission to Mars, and what can go wrong.
