Wednesday on the NewsHour, lower-income neighborhoods bear a disproportionate burden of the effects from the ongoing winter storm, protests against the military coup in Myanmar grow despite internet restrictions and police crackdowns, and NASA sends another probe to Mars with ambitious goals in mind, including learning whether life ever existed on its surface.
