104 - The Gooey Centre of Mars (feat. Simon Stähler)

Play Episode (40:31)

Over two years ago, NASA's InSight lander touched down on Mars and began listening for mars quakes. Now, scientists have used these data to reveal the interior structure of Mars. ETH Zurich's Simon Stähler joins Jake to talk about these results, how they help us understand Mars, and what we can do with this knowledge as we explore the rest of the solar system.

We talk InSight and SEIS
