The discovery of possible microfossils found in a Martian meteorite in Antarctica has fostered an even greater excitement in Mars exploration. In this informative lecture, Dr.Carr will discuss developments in biology in the past decade and how these developments contribute to the studies of possible life within the ancient water systems of Mars.
