Scientists have been exploring Mars with increasingly sophisticated missions ever since NASA's Mariner 4 mission in 1964. Each successful mission has revealed even more mysteries of the Red Planet. Now, with space agencies and industrial partners developing future human missions in greater detail, scientists are coordinating with the human space flight community to develop joint strategies in preparation for the day when astronauts will explore the planet’s surface.

Join Tony Darnell, Harley Thronson and Alberto Conti as they discuss with Drs. Pan Conrad and Lindsay Hays future scientific goals for Mars exploration and how working together with human exploration may make them possible.
