Published: 16 October 2019

New Scientist Live is the most important Science Festival in the world. This text has been translated into Swedish by an automatic translation program.

This worldwide global event is an award-winning, mind-blowing festival of ideas and discoveries for everyone curious about science and why it matters.

From October 10th to 13th London transforms in the world’s most exciting capital city to be inspired by the most amazing science and technology with over 120 engaging talks and over 150 interactive experiences

HABIT Tour has been located at the Cosmos zone, in stand number 451 representing the Group of Atmospheric Science from Luleå University of technology and interacting with all kind of audiences. More than 3,000 schoolchildren and teachers will visit the Cosmos Zone where is HABIT. HABIT is present in the New Scientist Live Teacher’s Pack with several educative guides and workshops as “Create your Martian instrument” or “Mars in your kitchen”.

Schools groups and families will take part in a science hunt with HABIT as a part of a treasure hunt that children can follow around the show floor encouraging them to visit our stand and answer questions related to Mars habitability and the search of life in the Red planet.

GAS will be present in the Science Festival with a talk by Chaired Professor Javier Martin-Torres titled “Can we live in the Red Planet ” where he will revise the quest of Martian habitability based on our current understanding of the environmental conditions on Mars provided by Curiosity and other missions, and on the definitions of life.
