After Earth, the red planet seems to be the body of the solar system where it is more likely to have ever existed life. Conversation with the researchers Adriano Henriques and Zita Martins about the search for Life on Mars.
Researchers from Instituto de Astrofísica e Ciências do Espaço will take us on a journey from the Solar System to the edge of the Universe in five-minute presentations.
In this session of Noites no Observatório learn about the new horizons in astronomy and the giant telescopes that promise to take us closer to the unreachable.
In this year’s European Researchers Night accept our invitation and take part in the many activities organised by IA or which we are joining.
