Mars Revisited – 24th March 2005

Our newest Honorary member, Greg Smye-Rumsby gave this evening’s talk; a retrospective look at observations and explorations, called Mars Revisited. His illustrations ranged from drawings by Antoniadi and Lowell, through to the latest images from the various rovers, landers and orbiters currently exploring the planet. He talked about many of the surprises Mars has produced, as each generation of observers interpreted their latest results and found they had to discard the previous generation’s certainties. We now know a great deal more about Mars than Antoniadi and Lowell, but there are still plenty of answers waiting to be discovered.
