NASA Ames researchers have long been involved in Mars research, particularly focused on astrobiology, habitability, human exploration, and the search for water on Mars. National Geographic has recently begun airing a new docu-series focused on the first human landing on Mars set in 2033. The series chronicles this journey to the Red Planet, and also highlights the “visionaries” of the year 2016 who helped to make human exploration of Mars possible. NASA Ames Space Scientist Jennifer Heldmann is featured in the series, discussing Mars in general, and the current search for water on Mars, outlining how this water would be a useful resource to enable future human exploration through the use of in situ resources on Mars.
