Coming Soon!!!

This netcast explores the rapidly changing world of biotech, with a penchant towards getting a better understanding of who we are and where we are going. The living world will soon be a true substrate for engineering. Our world will change, and so will we. 
We bring a first hand account from the scientists that are moving us into this new technological era: the era of biotech.

    FiB Episode 024 - The Phoenix Mars Mission with Dr. Deborah Bass

    Dr. Bass and her colleagues at NASA explore the Martian arctic for signs of life

    Host: Marc Pelletier

    Guest: Dr. Deborah Bass, Deputy Project Scientist, Phoenix Mars Mission

    Dr. Deborah Bass and her colleagues at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory and University of Arizona have sent a Martian lander on a 400 million mile/10 month journey to the Martian arctic. The lander is equipped with some of the most sophisticated geological instruments to study the history of water and potential for life in the Martian Arctic's ice-rich soil. We are potentially on the verge of one of history's most important discoveries. In less than ten months, a set of experiments will be performed to determine if there * IS * or * WAS * life in the waters of the Martian arctic. For more information please visit The Phoenix Mars Mission.

    Another interesting Fi"B", thanks as always!

    I don't know if the logistics would work out, but it would be interesting if you could let us know in advance who you'll be talking with (or even the specific subject if you couldn't name names), and we could write in questions in advance.

    I'll take a look at the Phoenix web site to see if the answer is there, but I'd be interested to hear what happens with the lander after the expected lifespan, for instance.
