The project at Grissom Hill – so named in 2004 after Gus Grissom, an astronaut in the 1960s – is working in conjunction with another project halfway across Mars led by Planetary Science expert Dr. Pilar Hau. The tandem effort is hoping to find common occurrences in Martian soil to better understand the geological evolution of the red planet. “If we’re right, Andre’s team will find similar patterns to what my team finds here. It could be big news for our understanding of this planet we now call home,” Dr. Hau said.
