Gerrit's talk will be: 

Using real-time seismic nodes to explore the Earth, Moon & Mars

As most of the outcropping and shallow mineral deposits have been found, new technology is imperative to finding the hidden critical mineral deposits required to transition to renewable energy. In this talk I will show Fleet’s progress in developing seismic technology to image the subsurface in real-time to address this challenge in an environmentally-friendly manner. I’ll also discuss our ambitions to deploy compact geophysical rovers on the Moon and Mars to image the subsurface to find resources for future colonisation missions.
