I’ll be on the BBC World Service program Newsday tonight (September 23) at 11:30 US Eastern time, to talk about Mars. The immediate reason is the arrival of two new probes: NASA’s MAVEN mission, which entered orbit Sunday evening, and India’s Mars Orbiter Mission (nicknamed Mangalyaan), which will begin orbiting Mars tonight. Tune in and listen! The program should also be archived at the BBC Newsday site; I’ll update with the specific link to my segment when it’s available.
