Visitors to the Shackleton Autumn School  in October will be able to consider the similarities between polar exploration in the age of Shackleton, Scott, Amundsen and Mawson and modern attempts to send men and women to Mars in Dr Erik Seedhouse's lecture - 'Survival and Sacrifice in Mars Exploration'.

A lecture not to be missed!
