A witty Undergraduate talk by Vincent Emery, including the history of mars exploration (Mariner missions), why we should travel to mars, the physics behind the space crafts and the Hohmann transfer orbit. He highlighted the importance of space exploration for science to keep inventing, for example Velcro invented for holding things in place during zero gravity.
