Walking on Mars

Dr. Allison Anderson and CU Boulder are at the forefront in designing a spacesuit to make exploration on Mars possible. With a focus on aerospace biomedical engineering and human physiology in extreme environments, Dr. Anderson will share how Buffs are developing the technologies to make a human mission to Mars reality.
