Andrew Coates is the Principal Investigator for PanCam, which will be the eyes of the ExoMars Rover of the European Space Agency to be launched in 2020. The Rover will travel across the Martian surface in search of signs of life, and PanCam will send back 3D views of the landscape. It will look for sites where there might still be organic material, and also help to navigate the spacecraft over the Martian terrain. The ExoMars rover will be able to choose its own route with the aid of its onboard cameras. Recorded at a meeting of the Society for Popular Astronomy at University College, London, on 28 April 2018.
