Nature Live Online: Rivers of Mars

Rivers and oceans are familiar and beautiful parts of the landscape on Earth.

Although cold and arid now, Mars once had lakes and rivers too. Join Museum scientist Joel Davis to find out how these ancient bodies of water were discovered, what they can reveal about past climate change on the red planet and how they could be instrumental in the search for ancient microbial life.

Once aired, you can rewatch this talk and any others on our Nature Live playlist on YouTube.

The Museum is closed but our work continues

As a charity we need your help. With our doors closed, we're losing vital income. We're doing everything we can to continue to connect people to nature by bringing the Museum to you through inspiring stories and educational activities. 

So if you could help us with a donation - no matter the size - we'd greatly appreciate it. Thank you.
