Roving on Mars in search for evidence of ancient life: the Curiosity and Perseverance rovers

In this lecture we discovered how current and a new generation of rovers are exploring the Red Planet in search of evidence for life on Mars in its distant past: exploration that is a close collaboration of engineering and science. We heard from one of the NASA missions’ scientists and Long Term Planners.

In its eighth year, Tomorrow’s Engineers Week provides a unique opportunity for engineers, employers, universities and schools to showcase how engineers working in all sectors are on a mission to make the world a better place.

Professor Gupta from Imperial certainly demonstrated the way in which his team is doing exactly that!
