Journey through Space with NASA Astronauts

February 17, 2021 @ 1:30 pm - 2:00 pm

Perseverance, NASA’s newest and most advanced rover, is on target to land on Mars on February 18, 2021. How did it get there and what might it reveal about our nearest planetary neighbor?

Join former NASA astronauts Mary Cleave, Paul Richards, and Alvin Drew on a virtual field trip from Earth to Mars with stops in between to learn how this mission got off the ground and why it’s so significant for us back here on Earth.

The tour will be piloted by Carter Emmart, the American Museum of Natural History’s Director of Astrovisualization, using OpenSpace, a NASA-funded open-source visualization software. Bring your questions to be answered on-screen and in the chat!
