Science on Site: Mars InSight Mission Roadshow

May 19, 2018 from 11:00am - 2:00pm
Science on Site: Mars InSight Mission Roadshow

NASA's InSight mission will be the first interplanetary launch from the West Coast, set for May 5 from Vandenberg Airforce Base.

In preparation for its May launch, the Mars InSight Roadshow is bringing family-friendly science activities to communities throughout California, making comparisons between earthquakes and the marsquakes that InSight will try to detect.

Stop by the Museum's Space Lab for the following activities:

(1) "Make Your Own Marsquake" demo, in which members of the public jump and see seismometer readings on a screen;
(2) Chat with NASA scientists and engineers;
(3) Take space selfies;
(4) View models of the InSight spacecraft; and
(5) Explore Mars globe "cutaways" showing the interior of Mars.

FREE with paid Museum admission.
