Would-be Mars explorers say Utah dinosaur find supports their cause The Salt Lake Tribune

Would-be Mars explorers believe a Utah dinosaur quarry is proof their extraterrestial quest is worthy.

A dinosaur fossil found 13 years ago in southern Utah has resulted in one of the largest fossil discoveries in history and highlights the importance of sending human explorers into space, according to The Mars Society.

Scott Williams, director of science and exhibits for the Burpee Museum of Natural History in Rockford, Illinois, said formal excavations in southern Utah started in 2008 after museum staff were directed to the site by geologists with the U.S. Bureau of Land Management.

The site, located about 10 miles northwest of Hanksville, has been called a “bone jackpot.” The fossil site extends for more than a quarter mile, Williams says, and is roughly the size and scope of the Dinosaur National Monument bonebed.

Mars atmosphere has life-killing chemical The Salt Lake Tribune

An astronomy team led by a Boulder-Colo.-based Space Science Institute researcher has detected hydrogen peroxide for the first time in the martian atmosphere. Antiseptic and life-killing, the chemical helps explain why the martian atmosphere and surface are void of life. Acting as a catalyst, it drives the abundance of carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide in the martian atmosphere. Without hydrogen peroxide, molecular oxygen — now a tiny sliver — would soar to compose 10 percent of the martian atmosphere.

BYU students zoom in on Mars base closer to home The Salt Lake Tribune

If people ever set foot on Mars, they may say it looks like the Utah desert. Members of Brigham Young University’s Mars Research Group already know that. The group has spent the past year working with the Mars Desert Research Station, a simulated Mars base seven miles outside of Hanksville, or 180 miles southeast of Salt Lake City.

Ex-astronaut calls moon stepping stone to Mars The Salt Lake Tribune

former NASA astronaut, the only scientist to walk on the moon, said the road for humans to one day set foot on Mars runs through Earth’s closest neighbor. “I suspect we’re going to end up going to Mars by way of the moon,” said Harrison Schmitt, a geologist and Apollo-era astronaut, while speaking at a Salt Lake City scientific meeting on Monday.

Utah teens working on Mars rover experiment The Salt Lake Tribune

High school students in computer graphics courses at Mountainland Applied Technology College are helping a NASA mission to Mars. “I’m excited but a little nervous,” said Shaun Watson, 17, a Provo High School senior. “It’s going to be so big and everyone’s going to be relying on us.” Students in two MATC multimedia courses will serve as one of 54 Mars Exploration Student Data Teams, assisting NASA as two rovers launched last summer land on the red planet in January and begin exploring.
