Astronomy Cast, Ep: 258: Viking Landers

Article written: 23 Apr , 2012

Last week we talked about the orbiter portion of the Viking Missions. But that was only half the adventure. Each Viking spacecraft carried a lander as well, which touched down on the surface of Mars, searching for evidence of past and current life. And what they discovered is still up for debate.

    Any chance you may provide these extended Google hangouts in .mp3 format? I still prefer listening to these in the car or in bed.

      56 is linked in astrospherevides on youtube, but 257 eludes me as well. I LOVE listening to these and have been Jonesing as have we all and I hate not listening in sequence… I’M GOING NUTS!

    Observing Hydrogen is the last one I have as well. I haven’t seen a new podcast in a month. I also haven’t caught this podcast with iTunes.

      They are no longer in iTunes. You can download them, but them they will not be listed in your “podcasts.”
