Mars Update begins with a brief overview of how our views on Mars have changed over the years – from H.G. Wells and Percival Lowell to the Mars Exploration Rovers Spirit and Opportunity.

From there we look at where to find Mars in the current night sky as well as the current status of the various spacecraft working at Mars, what they’ve discovered, and what other spacecraft have been or will be doing on Mars.

The show features a fifteen-minute, self-contained chapter of how our views of Mars have changed over the years – from H.G. Wells and Percival Lowell to Spirit and Opportunity.

The rest of the program is presented live and can include as much or as little detail as you want. Images and video are included to get you started, but you can add or subtract as you please and tailor the show to your audience.
