The Mars Group at the Niels Bohr Institute is a research group working with experimental exploration of the Martian surface. Our research is focused on surface materials - with emphasis on mineralogy - particularly airborne dust, and both local and regional wind patterns. Our investigations are primarily based on the instruments we have designed and built for Mars Lander missions.
Currently the group is excited about its participation in the Mars Science Laboratory (MSL) mission with its rover, Curiosity, which successfully landed early morning (DK-time) Monday the 6'th of August 2012, See the link to the danish MSL blog in the left panel.
From May through September 2008 most members of our group worked in the Science Operations Centre of NASAs Phoenix Mars Lander Mission. Phoenix landed on Mars the 25th of May 2008 and was active through October 2008.
