A team of UNM scientists working with Martian rovers is helping us interpret the history of Mars.  These high-tech rovers analyze rocks and help us understand the story of the environment in which they were laid down. Ryan Jackson will lead this Teen Science Café, telling stories of his work with the Rover and exploring how our understanding of Earth’s geologic history informs our understanding of Mars.

Guest scientist: Ryan Jackson, PhD student in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences at UNM

Ryan’s research involves using chemical changes within rocks to understand past environments on Mars and the Earth. A New Mexico native, Ryan graduated from Eastern New Mexico University and has interned at NASA Johnson Space Center, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, and Los Alamos National Laboratory.
