Arizona has been and continues to be important to the exploration and understanding of planet Mars. Leading scientists at Arizona State University, University of Arizona, and the USGS Astrogeology Science Center in Flagstaff continually use the unique terrain of the Southwest in their research as a Mars analog. Join Danny Foley, ASU geologist who has worked on the Mars Rover mission and other Mars research projects, as he discusses the geology and exploration of a planet that has canyons that could stretch from New York to Los Angeles and a volcano almost three times as high as Mt. Everest.
