Astronomer Ian Griffin - getting close to Mars

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 2:29 pm on 11 June 2018

Astronomer, planet-discoverer and Otago Museum director Dr Ian Griffin joins us to talk all things Mars, and how excited he is to be getting to spend a week at the Mt John Observatory to view the planet through the country's best telescope as it gets closer to earth than it has in 15 years.
