Bruce Swinyard tells us about RAL’s work on the Herschel Space Observatory and in particular the SPIRE instrument (Spectral and
Photometric Imaging Receiver) which is being lead from the UK
Helen Walker talks to Katy Astley about the ESA Mars Express mission
and it’s discoveries. Helen also helps ESA plan and command the science operations from RAL and we find out some of the difficulties of setting priorities for such an important scientific mission.
Bob Bingham also tells us about Mars, but from a more human angle. He discusses the possibility of sending humans to Mars and the problems that would have to be overcome to get them there.
