Mars Invasion

Ages 9 - Adult

The Mars invasion has begun. The little red planet has attracted the attention of humans for decades, and this program will follow the history and current events in our exploration of that little red neighbor. Visitors will have the chance to find Mars in the sky, and use 3D glasses to view the stereo imagery from recent exploration on the surface of Mars. The planetarium host will add an introduction to the Maine sky and its constellations. Mars Invasion traces the long tradition of human curiosity about Mars and our assault of technology from the Mariner missions in the 1970's to the orbiters and rovers of today. Perhaps the next machines we send there will be human.
