DOTliveplanetarium: "The Red Planet" (EN)

When:Tu 25-02-2020 20:00 - 21:00
Where:DOT, Vrydemalaan 2, 9713 WS Groningen

We're going to Mars in our 20 meter dome. It's a planet that has always had our attention, as bright and red as it is on our sky. Since it's the planet with an orbit closest to that of Earth, we have sent space probes and rovers there many a time. At this moment, there are eight active Mars Missions, the Curiosity Rover and the Mars Reconnaissane Orbiter being well-known examples.

During this show we'll first show you the night sky, after which we'll take you along to the Red Planet. We'll tell a bit about our history with our planetary neighbour and tell you some of the unique things about Mars, aided by recent images from the many Mars missions.

The planetarium show is from 20:00 - 21:00 at DOT, Vrydemalaan 2, Groningen. Please be present at 19:45 to enter the dome. Tickets cost € 6.00 per person. This show will be in English.
