Comins Discusses Mars Landing

University of Maine physics and astronomy professor Neil Comins, author of many books on space, space travel, planets and the universe, was a guest on The Pulse morning radio talk show, and discussed (60 minutes into the show) the importance of the nation’s space program and the successful early Monday landing of NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity.

Comins said exploration of space yields information and research beneficial in many ways beyond individual space missions. Comins also spoke with Channel 5 (WABI) for a report on the Curiosity mission.
