WVLT-TV Local 8 Now reported that UT students can now roam the planet Mars with new glasses. Using new Hololens designed by Microsoft, students can actually virtually walk on the planet, while studying the sandy, rocky terrain. Linda Kah, a UT carbonate sedimentology and geochemistry professor in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, said

A new study released this week reveals NASA’s Curiosity Rover has helped find evidence of water in the soil. One of the scientists who took part in the study is Linda Kah, associate professor of geology. WATE-TV’s Josh Ault spoke with Kah.
NASA’s Curiosity rover has been poking, prodding, and sniffing the rocks around Mars in an attempt to better understand its past and present. Linda Kah, associate professor of earth and planetary sciences, is a part of the science team investigating Mars and spoke with WUOT’s All Things Considered host Brandon Hollingsworth about what Curiosity has learned in its first year, and the exciting “road trip” yet to come.
Scientists say they have now found evidence that there used to be flowing water on Mars. Helping those scientists is associate professor of earth and planetary sciences Linda Kah, who is using her expertise in geology to analyze their findings. She spoke with WATE-TV about the Mars Curiosity mission.
Linda Kah, associate professor in Earth and Planetary Sciences, spoke to WATE-TV about the latest finding of NASA’s Mars Curiosity over. An analysis of a rock sample collected by the rover shows ancient Mars could have supported living microbes.
Linda Kah, an associate professor in earth and planetary sciences, has been working with NASA on the Curiosity rover mission to Mars for eight years. She will be discussing the mission at the Science Forum on Friday. Kah will talk about the mission’s goal to assess if any area of Mars is habitable or has been in the past. The presentation begins at noon in Rooms C-D of Thompson-Boling Arena. Attendees can bring lunch or purchase it at the arena.
Linda Kah is an integral part of the NASA team working on the Curiosity rover on Mars. The associate professor of earth and planetary sciences works on camera team that is searching for features within rocks that might provide clues to the role of fluids in the planet’s past. This week, she shared a self-portrait of the rover.
Linda Kah, associate professor of earth and planetary sciences, and her Mars Curiosity camera team call this picture “Wall-E.”
Three UT professors have had a hand in NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity including Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Professor Ben Blalock. The Knoxville News Sentinel interviewed Blalock about his role developing microchips that help control dozens of motors inside the rover.
NASA’s Curiosity rover landed on Mars Sunday night. Then, the work began for two UT professors searching for potentially habitable environments on the red planet. Linda Kah and Jeffrey Moersch, associate professors in the Department of Earth and Planetary Sciences, are an integral part of the NASA team working on the rover.
