MAH | Mission to Mars (Part II)

July 30, 2020 @ 10:00 am 10:30 am

Okay, you couldn’t get enough of our Tuesday’s Mission to Mars session, so we’re back for part two!

NASA is about to launch a new rover to Mars. What we do already know about this planet, and how do we know it? We’ll take a look at some previous missions to Mars and discuss what we’ve learned from them about this cold desert world. We’ll also show you how to find Mars in the sky tonight.
