Carlson says NASA and the astronomical community have a longstanding interest in exploring Mars. Determining if Mars had or even has life is an important tool in this ongoing exploration.
He says the landing is the most difficult part of the whole mission. “There are a lot of things that can go wrong, and based on past experience, many things do go wrong. If so, it would have been a disaster, with billions of dollars at stake. So, it is a big deal that it succeeded.”
