The UK Space Agency’s Aurora programme, which links to international Mars missions, has reopened with £3m in the kitty. The hunt for fellows and postdocs is back on, Sue Horne, ‎space exploration programme manager, tells Lila Randall.

The Aurora programme was launched in 2005 and has one round a year. This year, there is £3 million available, roughly double the amount available last year.
