Curiosity on Mars at the Rauch Planetatrium March 8th
We may not be able to fly out on a mission to Mars and investigate it for ourselves, but the Rauch Planetarium is giving space enthusiasts a virtual experience on March 8th from 7:00 p.m. untill 8:00 p.m. Families and friends can join Dr. Thomas Tretter on a virtual spaceship following the Curiosity Rover's mission on Mars, for FREE, at the Gheen Science Hall and Rauch Planetarium at 106 West Brandeis Avenue in Louisville.
This is a fun for all ages event. The kids can explore Mars in the comfort of our own environment so there is no need for a spacesuit. Together, you can experience the way scientists measure Martian samples collected by the Curiosity along with the chemical elements they acquire. Once the land exploration is over, viewers take a virtual hop back into the ship to explore further into the galaxy, to the Milky Way and beyond.
Those still in the mood for space adventures after Mars might enjoy staying for the Skies Over Louisville Presentation at the same location. The price of admission to this event is $8 adults, $6 ages 12 to 18, and children under 12, seniors over 65 and affiliates of the University of Louisville being admitted for Free.
Space out with your family and friends on March 8th at the Rauch Planetarium’s Curiosity Mission to Mars.
