Google+ Hangout with ESA and 10 Years of Mars Express

In celebration of World Space Week, experts from ESA’s Mars Express mission will join the US Planetary Society in a Google Hangout focusing on the Red Planet on Friday. 

The live discussion will include highlights of ESA’s 10 years of exploring Mars, recent scientific results, interagency cooperation at the Red Planet and plans for the closest-ever flyby of Phobos later this year.

The event will feature ESA’s Olivier Witasse, Project Scientist for Mars Express, and Michel Denis, Spacecraft Operations Manager, in a live Google+ Hangout, or video chat, together with Emily Lakdawalla, Senior Editor for the Planetary Society.

The Hangout will take place on Friday, 4 October, starting at 14:00 GMT (16:00 CEST) and is expected to run for about 1 hour.

Michel will join the chat from the Mars Express control room in Germany, while Olivier will log in from the Agency’s technical centre in the Netherlands. Emily will join from the USA.

You can follow the Hangout via ESA’s Google+ channel; the audience is also invited to post questions via Google+ or via Twitter, using the hashtag #marschat.
