Humanity has long wondered about the possibility of life beyond Earth. Hear from leading astrobiologist David Flannery on NASA’s Perseverance Rover Mission and his search for life on Mars. This presentation was recorded on the Main Stage at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery during the Beaker Street Festival 2022.


This video was recorded at Beaker Street Festival, an annual celebration of science and art held in Hobart, Tasmania each August.  It’s a place to share ideas, culture, and excellent Tassie food and drink — bringing warmth, connection and inspiration to lutruwita/Tasmania’s winter. The Festival promises entertainment, education, debate, and community in a participatory atmosphere.
