Today we will be talking with Dr. Pascal Lee about the possibilities of breaking one of the next barrier we humans have so far, which is traveling to another planet. He has dedicated his life to the study and research of planet mars, also to the possibilities that it offers us, its mysteries and the known data. 

If you enjoy listening about science and about space exploration, with this show you will have a blast. Also, if you are just curious about the possibilities of space, you will also enjoy all the information-packed-show we have for you today and also in the second part of the Mars special, next week.

Dr. Lee is the principal investigator of the Haughton-Mars Project at NASA Ames Research Center in Mountain View, California. He is also a main planetary scientist at the SETI Institute at Mountain View, California, and a Co-founder and chairman of the Mars institute, also in Mountain View. He is, in short one of the main experts in the topic of Planet Mars.
