Is There Life on Mars?

Tuesday 27th November / presented by Jane Hebiton

Canberra-based CSIRO spokesperson Glen Nagle calls in to RTRFM to discuss the Insight lander which is set to land on Mars at a little after 7am tomorrow.

The probe, with its payload of sensors designed to see deep inside the red planet, has spent the last six months silently whizzing through space. With a speed six times faster than a bullet the small metal shell will reach the planet's surface, delivering with it the NASA Insight which Glen's team at The Deep Space Communication Complex in Canberra is tasked with communicating with 24/7.
