This Friday (Feb. 5), "Space Chat" will explore Mars as we prepare to land Perseverance on the Red Planet.
This week, Space.com staff writer Chelsea Gohd will be discussing and answering questions about Mars as NASA's Perseverance rover is set to land on Mars soon, on Feb. 18, as part of the agency's Mars 2020 mission.
Every Friday at 1 p.m. EDT (17000 GMT), Gohd hosts our brand new series Space Chat. Each episode of the series, which will run live on Space.com's Facebook page, will explore a new spacetastic topic, spanning from Earth to the universe and far, far beyond.
If this sounds good to you, you can actually get involved and be a part of Space Chat. During the live broadcast, Gohd will be answering questions from the Space.com community. You can leave your question in the comments section of the live video or, before the video goes live, you can post your question on any of Space.com's social media channels (you can find us on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.)
Do you have a specific topic you'd like Gohd to discuss in a future Space Chat episode? Are you passionate about nebulas? Curious about NASA's James Webb Space Telescope? Wanting to take a deep dive into astrobiology and the search for life?
Post your suggestion for future episode topics to any of Space.com's social media channels. Also, if you're looking to stay actively involved in the Space.com community, feel free to chat with other space enthusiasts over in our Space.com Forums here.
