    Title

    Mars Exploration – Science, Instruments and Technologies

    Description

    The planet Mars is being explored now and in the coming years with multiple robotic missions from a variety of nations. This session will cover science, instruments and technologies for Mars missions including expected experiments. Papers on any aspects of the search for evidence or extinct Martian life, and forward and backward contamination are particularly welcome.
