We welcomed Chris Carberry, Executive Director of ExploreMars.org as we discussed the ExoLance Mars Life Detection project now in its design stage. For more information, visit https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/exolance. Chris explained the project, told us about some of the project's consulting scientists, using the tungsten penetrator probes as possible spaceship ballast on upcoming NASA missions to Mars, and the "biology lab on a chip" concept for the actual life detection experiments on the penetrators. Chris was also asked why finding life on Mars is important and why his group is looking to do this for microbial life rather than NASA.
