Liquid Water on Mars and its Implications for Life General Meeting
Wednesday, 2 November 2016 8:00 PM
Given our current state of knowledge of life on Earth, three pre-requisites are necessary for an environment to be ‘habitable’ and therefore capable of supporting terrestrial-like life: energy, biogenic elements, and liquid water. Using evidence from the Phoenix Lander and the Mars Science Laboratory, Dr Eriita Jones from the University of South Australia will discuss the occurrence of these three factors and habitable conditions in the shallow Martian regolith.
