MarsQuest

April & May: Saturdays and Sundays at 2:30 pm

With recorded narration by Patrick Stewart, MarsQuest chronicles humanity’s fascination with the planet Mars, from early observations of its “canals” to stories like War of the Worlds.  Spacecraft mission findings are used to compare Mars’ weather, climate, and geology to Earth’s. We learn what will be needed to get crewed missions there, and what the first landing may be like.
