We post it here because it was possibly the last time the Shoemakers spoke publicly about their work. It rewards the patient listener with an insight into their remarkable scientific partnership.

Not BroadcastUniversity of Melbourne ScientistsLife On Mars?.

Following the announcement that possible fossils had been discovered in a meteorite from Mars, a public lecture was delivered by five sccientists from the University of Melbourne.

Recorded at Melbourne University on 1996 August 22, this event was never broadcast because the speakers were peripatetic, and did not use the microphone. This caused the recording quality to be variable and not up to broadcast standard. However, if you are prepared to give this recording your close attention, you will be rewarded with an insight into the 1996 reaction to the life on Mars claim. Part Two includes questions from the audience.
