Life on Mars panel event featuring Professor Martin Van Kranendonk
During National Science Week in August 2019, BQI partnered with BHP to host a Life on Mars event that was held at the Perth Exhibition and Convention Centre. The specialist panel for this event included NASA scientist Dr. Mitch Schulte, BQI Director Professor Martin Van Kranendonk, Arizona State University Professor Paul Davies, BHP Head Geoscientist Dr. Vanessa Lickfold, and Curtin University Research Ambassador Renae Sayers.
The panel talked about how rocks in Western Australia could help scientists to find life on Mars. You can read about it in the Sydney Morning Herald here, or listen to radio interviews with local radio stations RTRFM and 6PR.
