Mars 2020: Follow Perseverance to Mars
Time: 4:00 PM
Location: Online (From Your Home)
The Perseverance Rover will launch this summer (July 17 – August 5) and head to Jezero Crater. The American Museum of Natural History Director of Astrovisualization Carter Emmart will lead us on an exploration of this exciting landing site as we fly over it together using Open Space, NASA-supported software. We will see why Jezero Crater was chosen and the features it has to offer for this latest in NASA’s series of Mars rovers to investigate past conditions which could have supported life.
Ask a scientist: During the webcast, you will be able to interact with scientists by asking questions (using the chat feature) about NASA’s 2020 Mars Mission.
