REACHing Out are bi-weekly mini-episodes where we answer YOUR Questions. This week's question comes from Dee in Arkansas who asks "How Can I Become an Astronomer?" For an answer, we turn to REACH Special Contributor Joalda Morancy .
We've learned about the Mars Perseverance Rover, but how will the rover actually get to the surface of the red planet? Guest Gregory Villar, EDL Systems Engineer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, walks us through the landing before we have a return visit from the red planet itself on this episode of REACH.
Could life exist on other worlds? Could the answer be found on an ice covered moon of Jupiter? If you could go anywhere in the solar system, where would you go? We discuss all of this and more and have a visit with a very popular moon on this episode of REACH.
What makes a space telescope different from a telescope here on Earth? If you could take a picture of anything in space, what would you photograph? We discuss all of this and more and have a visit with our favorite former planet on this episode of REACH.
