Organization: Astronomy Cast – http://www.astronomycast.com

Description:  We’re fitting one more episode in before Fraser heads off to Costa Rica for a week! Come and hear about the debate on whether there could be life on Mars, and what that would mean for Earth.

So sure, Enceladus & Europa are all the rage these days, but classic Mars is still a great place to search for life. In fact, ESA’s ExoMars is scanning the planet’s atmosphere for methane right now, searching for evidence that there might be life there. Let’s talk about the search for life on the Red Planet.

Bio: Fraser Cain is the publisher of Universe Today and Dr. Pamela Gay is a professor at Southern Illinois University-Edwardsville. They team up to do Astronomy Cast, a weekly facts-based journey through the cosmos.
