“The history of the search for life on Mars”.
Dr Alastair Tait is a Monash University affiliate researcher, astrobiologist, former NASA MER Exploration Rover scientist, and NASA/Lunar Planetary Institute intern. His primary research focuses on meteorites interacting with the surface chemistries of planets and their potential role in supporting life. In addition, Alastair is a science communicator with talks at the Glasgow Astronomical Society and numerous universities, as well as appearances on ABCs “Catalyst” and documentaries, including the recent “HOME – The Story of Earth”.
