Learn about Mars from Hari and Sam who have great connections to Mars through the New Zealand Astrobiology Network and its relationship with NASA, the European Space Agency and JAXA.
Furthermore, Hari is an analogue astronaut who trained for Mars since 2011. Hari shares about her experiences and her internship at NASA Ames where she looked at the planetary protection of Mars from contamination with life that might come from Earth. Hari has also been a guest lecturer on astrobiology at Massey and Victoria Universities and supported the creation of the astrobiology course at University of Auckland where she lectures about Planetary Protection.
Together with Sam and with support from Curious Minds and NASA scientists Hari created a school programme called Synergies in Space, which is a simulated Mars Mission in schools.
