Analog Sites for Mars Missions II; Past, Present, and Future Missions to Mars
We would like to invite the planetary community to participate in a two-part discussion of terrestrial analog sites for future Mars research.
In Part 1, we are currently conducting an online discussion forum: http://planetsonearth.com/forums/general-discussion to (i) discuss outstanding Mars science questions that might be answered through previous, ongoing, or future missions, including the 2020 rover mission, (ii) tackle how these questions could be addressed with analog research on Earth, (iii) summarize the topics discussed and identify science objectives to be addressed through abstracts for the following analog research workshop.
We have discussion leaders, including Lisa Pratt, Kris Zacny and Steve Squyres, who will be available for an hour or two to answer questions and participate in the discussion regarding specific topics on certain days. It is also possible to post your comments and questions anytime as long as the forum is open.
The workshop, Part 2, will continue the discussion with in-person presentations and breakout sessions. The workshop will be held on August 5th-7th at the Carnegie Institution of Washington in Washington, DC. For more information visit: http://planetsonearth.com
