Lead Curiosity Driver Matt Heverly and Research Scientist Bethany Ehlmann elaborate on the unusual working conditions involved with a Mars rover expedition. The time has come! The Curiosity rover will be landing on the planet Mars on August 5, 2012. The Exploratorium crew did a special live webcast from the museum floor at our evening program for adults, called After Dark. Join us as we get the lowdown on the Mars mission! Research Scientist Bethany Ehlmann and Mechanical Designer Scott McGinley explain some of the scientific instruments aboard the Mars rover Curiosity. Engineers at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) explain how they simulate martian conditions and conduct tests with model rovers to prepare the Curiosity rover for its journey to Mars and its work on the red planet. Join the Exploratorium crew on our trip to NASA’s Jet Propulsion Lab (JPL) in
Pasadena, California, to learn more about the Mars Science Laboratory mission
and the Curiosity rover. A glimpse of the full-scale model of the Mars rover, Curiosity. On display at the Exploratorium from August 1st to September 16, 2012. This model is on loan from JPL, NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and there are only two on loan in the United States! It's time for a new mission to Mars! Join Exploratorium science educators as we celebrate the launch of the newest rover, Curiosity, as it begins it's 8 1/2 month journey to the planet Mars. We will look at the launch itself, talk a little bit about MSL(Mars Science Laboratory) and Curiosity, summarize the history of Mars exploration, and look forward to what is next! In this short interview with Dan Goods, designer, artist, and visual strategist at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Goods discusses his art piece, "Jupiter Fog Pool." The piece, inspired by the Juno mission to Jupiter, was part of "Cosmological Constructs," our After Dark event of September 2010. Learn more about the new mission to Mars! The Mars Phoenix Lander touched down on the Red Planet on Sunday, May 25, 2008, and began collecting data. Phoenix is designed to study the history of water and search for complex organic molecules in the Martian arctic's ice-rich soil. Join Exploratorium Senior Scientist Paul Doherty as he walks us through the mission and shows us the first pictures that the Phoenix Lander sends back! The two Mars Rovers are alive and well after surviving their second Martian winter. Come and see photos of discoveries they made during their third year on Mars, with Exploratorium Senior Scientist Paul Doherty.
