Major crises like last week’s storm or Flint, Michigan’s unsafe water supply capture our attention. Those situations require us to respond with immediate, extensive, and costly fixes. We are not so good at investing the resources we need to prevent those large crises.Major crises like last week’s storm or Flint, Michigan’s unsafe water supply capture our attention.

A Montrealer has made it to Mars... sort of. NASA Engineer Farah Alibay, who was born in the city, is helping to coordinate part of the space agency's Perseverance mission, whose rover touched down on the red planet on February 18. On Twitter, Alibay shared a video of herself jumping for joy at the moment NASA confirmed Perseverance's successful landing.

That moment when we heard “Touchdown Confirmed!” - I still can’t believe that we’re safely on Mars 🤩 pic.twitter.com/VmUzIzzjxx — Farah Alibay (@farahalibay) February 19, 2021 She also shared a photo of Perseverance approaching the surface — which she said made her "scream with amazement." This amazing picture of the rover being lowered to the Martian surface arrived during my shift last night and made me scream with amazement - glad we can now share it! This is a real feat of engineering - I’m so proud of the #Perseverance rover team! 😍 pic.twitter.com/F4N9Byc06I — Farah Alibay (@farahalibay) February 19, 2021 According to Bloc Québécois leader Yves-François Blanchet, who introduced a motion at the Canadian House of Commons to congratulate Alibay, the engineer is working specifically to "coordinate the operations of the helicopter Ingenuity," which is attached to the Perseverance rover and will embark on the "very first powered flight" on Mars, according to NASA. La mission de @farahalibay commence aujourd'hui: à coups de patience et de centimètres sur un terrain ardu, elle pilotera le rover de la @NASA à la recherche d'une trace de vie passée ailleurs que sur Terre.Le @BlocQuebecois et le Parlement lui souhaitent un succès historique. pic.twitter.com/oXfMBw6PSv — Yves-F. Blanchet 🎗⚜️ (@yfblanchet) February 18, 2021 In her NASA bio, Alibay explains that her parents arrived in Canada after leaving Madagascar during a period of civil unrest. "Growing up, they always encouraged me to pursue my dreams," she says. "They led by example and showed me that I could achieve whatever I put my mind to." Alibay went on to attend high school and university in England.Farah Alibay is an inspiration for Montrealers.

NASA has released extraordinary new pictures of Mars captured by the Perseverance rover after a dramatic touchdown. More than 30 gigabytes of information has already been collected from the rover along with 23,000 thousand images. It took seven months for Perseverance to travel to Mars and seven minutes for the landing. Scientists hope the historic journey will provide detailed information on the planet. Approximately 50 per cent of all missions to Mars have previously failed. NASA has released extraordinary new pictures of Mars captured by the Perseverance rover after a dramatic touchdown.

The US space agency NASA has released the first audio from Mars, a faint crackling recording of wind captured by the Perseverance rover. A microphone did not work during the rover's descent to the surface, but it was able to capture audio once it landed on Mars. The first-of-its-kind audio has been released along with extraordinary new video footage of the rover as it descended and landed last Thursday. On the show we are joined by Dr Swati Mohan, the Indian American scientist who led the guidance and control operations of the Mars 2020 mission. She talks about the what the 'Seven Minutes Terror' was and about the tiny bindi she wore that has generated a huge buzz on social media.The US space agency NASA has released the first audio from Mars, a faint crackling recording of wind captured by the Perseverance rover.
