39 – LPSC 2018

Every year, upwards of 2,000 planetary scientists descend upon a suburb of Houston to discuss the latest findings, share the work, and learn something new at the Lunar and Planetary Science Conference (LPSC). A lot of Mars happens at these conferences, so WeMartians decided to attend it in person! Jake catches up with old friends, makes some new ones, and explores Mars like never before. This year, we explore the fascinating use of Earth Analogs to help us better understand the science happening on Mars. We discuss #LPSC2018, Earth Analogs and their value at Mars What a Sinuous Ridge looks like on Earth What a Sinuous Ridge looks like on Mars Ben Cardenas' Abstract for his LPSC talk Dante Lauretta's Abstract - Pretending Earth was another world Jordan Knuth's abstract on Cold Springs in Utah Paul Knightly's abstract for his poster on Mars 160 experiments Paul tours the Mars Society Habitat in Devon Island Canada (FMARS) VIDEO Apollo 17 45th Anniversary Live Stream NASA BASALT Video Catheryn Ryan's Poster Abstract on LIFS Past coverage of LPSC Episode 21: LPSC2017 (March 2017) Follow Jake & WeMartians Website (www.wemartians.com) Patreon (www.patreon.com/wemartians) Learn about the Orbiter Level ($1/month) Learn about the Lander Level ($3/month) Learn about the Rover Level ($5/month) WeMartians Shop (shop.wemartians.com) Twitter (@we_martians) Facebook (@wemartians) Instagram (@wemartians) Jake’s Twitter (@JakeOnOrbit) WeMartians music is “RetroFuture” and “On My Way” by Kevin MacLeod (incompetech.com) Licensed under Creative Commons: By Attribution 3.0 License http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by/3.0/
