We’ve been asking the question for centuries, but could clues in Western Australia’s Pilbara soon give us answers?

How will people live on the red planet? Is there already simple life there? Will Mars be a base for humanity one day stepping out into the galaxy? Do we have galactic neighbours?

Graham Phillips (former host of ABC’s Catalyst) will lead this panel of leading Australian and International scientists to give you the answers. Panellists include: NASA Mars 2020 rover mission program scientist Dr Mitch Schulte; Physicist Professor Paul Davies from Arizona State University; Astrobiologist from University of NSW, Professor Martin Van Kranendonk; BHP’s Dr Vanessa Lickfold and Curtin University’s Renae Sayers.

Presented by BHP and UNSW’s Big Questions Institute.
