'The Planets - Mars' NOVA Virtual Movie Night and discussion

Join your TeamSETI friends for Movie Night, featuring an episode of NOVA's docuseries The Planets about Mars. Seth Shostak, senior astronomer at the SETI Institute, will host the viewing, and Dr. Lori Fenton, a planetary scientist who studies climate change on Mars, will join us as a special guest to answer your questions.

Learn more about Mars before the Perseverance Rover lands on the red planet in February.

The Planets is a NOVA series that showcases the mysteries and magic of the planets in our Solar System. The second episode, titled Mars, gives viewers a close-up look at the red planet--past and present.

Episode summary: Mars was once a blue water-world with active volcanoes. But when its magnetic field and protective atmosphere faded, it became the frozen desert planet we know today. With so many necessary elements in place, did life ever form on Mars?
