TEMPE, Ariz. (KSAZ) - Every day, Arizona State University students are working side-by-side with NASA in hope of better understanding this mysterious, red plant.
It all happens here, at their Mars Exploration Center, which is a place where students like Andy are already making big and influential impacts.
"I work primarily with temperature measurements on the surfaces of these planets," he said.
That information helps NASA figure out where to send Rovers safely and this Saturday is your chance to ask students all about it.
It's called the "Night of the Open Door" event and from sciences, to engineering, to the arts, you'll have more than 300 hands-on experiences to participate in, along with demonstrations and performances.
The hope is to allow a better understanding of ASU's contributions and perhaps the best part, all of it is completely free.
