Searching for Spiders on Mars: Q+A with Maria Zuber, Vice President of Research at MIT

The opening ceremonies for Cambridge Science Week didn’t actually have all that much to do with Cambridge or even planet earth. “Mars, Really?” kicked off the festival with a panel discussion on why we are headed to Mars, how to get there, and what we are going to do once we are there.

I spoke with Dr. Maria Zuber, Vice President of Research, geophysicist, and alien hunter after the talk to get her thoughts on sending people to the Red Planet.
