Support Planetary Radio

On Earth, life always seems to find a way to thrive. Could the same be true on Mars? NASA planetary scientist Chris McKay wants to know. Chris also talks about Europa and Titan on this week's Planetary Radio. Emily Lakdawalla provides fascinating background information on the Martian environment and living things that might survive there, while What's Up? with Bruce Betts offers our new trivia question.


No trivia contest spoilers please!
