Mars is home to the solar systems’ largest volcano, its deepest canyon, and it has thick sedimentary rock formations that are mind bogglingly old. Join Dr Neil Hodgson to look at the view you get from the shoulders of NASA as we explore the geology of the Red Planet in one of our Geotalks webinars. Webinar recording is included in this article.

For over three billion years the surface of Mars has been sculpted by the gentle winds of a thin atmosphere, volcanism and meteorite impacts. Understanding this geology is the key in the search for life.
