The Search for Life On Mars (No. 104)

First Aired Thursday, May 26, 2005

Is there life on Mars? What might it look like? This program joins NASA scientists on a quest to answer these questions. They are learning that on Earth microscopic life is hiding underground in even the most extreme environments. Could these subterranean microbes be what we are looking for? Or might the face of alien life be so different from earthly life that we have to redefine life to detect it? Produced by Mark Andrews for TERRA. Distributed by KUSM/MontanaPBS, MSU Bozeman.
