NASA’s Journey to Mars 2020 with NASA Ambassador John Fontana
Date(s) - Wednesday, April 22
6:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Wednesday, April 22 at 6:30 PM VIA ZOOM
Mars’ the planet that was once a nice place to live, even earth-like. Today, it is inhospitable to human life. So what happened?
Mars holds a fascination for us. It is the most intensely studied planet after Earth. It has been the subject of science fiction writings, movies, and television shows.
Scheduled for a July launch, the Mars 2020 probe, officially named Perseverance, will take a journey there to investigate if life could still exist. We know that water is buried beneath the Martian crust at the polar ice caps. We also know that where liquid water exists there is a chance for life. It could be single-celled organisms but life nonetheless.
NASA has a big plan for Mars: We are sending astronauts there by 2035, a mere fifteen years from now. It is a journey fraught with danger but the brilliant minds working on this goal will overcome them.
Join us on our journey to learn the secrets of the Red Planet (it’s not all red) including exploring the theory that our ancient ancestors were Martians. Please tune in to Zoom on April 22 at 6:30 PM and prepare to be mesmerized.
