Planet Mars: Exciting Rover Discoveries

by Dr Victor Gostin, Earth Sciences, University of Adelaide

Summary: The Perseverance rover is the most complex object ever sent to Mars. This rover is searching for evidence of ancient microbial life in Jezero Crater where a beautiful ancient alluvial fan is now the focus of attention. This lecture should provide useful background information of this interesting planet and outline some of its Australian scientific contributions.

Bio: Dr. Gostin has been researching, supervising and teaching geology and earth history at undergraduate and postgraduate levels since 1970. He has supervised many research students in sedimentary, environmental, and petroleum geology. He is also concerned in promoting the understanding of earth sciences throughout the community. His identification of an extensive ejecta blanket derived from Australia's largest meteorite impact (honoured by asteroid 3640 GOSTIN), has widened his attention to planetary geology and to current climatic issues.
