Exomars Rover video clips
Last Friday, the University campus was visited by a functioning model of the ExoMars Rover (called 'Bridget' for not entirely clear reasons). ExoMars is the European-led ESA/NASA mission to the red planet in 2018 - see previous Newsblog entry.
You can now watch a short video interview about the Rover's visit and also a longer interview with Professor Mark Sims from our Department of Physics and Astronomy, discussing the project and Leicester’s involvement with it.
