BRIT RESEARCHERS INVOLVED IN MARS TRIP
UK-based experts are lending their expertise to NASA’s Mars mission to probe life on the Red Planet.
Prof Sanjeev Gupta from Imperial College, London, is helping the agency oversee mission operations from a science and engineering point of view, reports the Mirror.
Prof Mark Sephton, another Imperial expert, will help identify Mars samples.
He said: “With one carefully chosen sample, we could discover that the history of life on the Earth is not unique in the Universe.”
And Prof Caroline Smith, from the Natural History Museum, is to examine rocks plucked from Mars’ craters.
