Hardin Planetarium to present Perserverance to Reach Mars
By Tommy Newton
Perseverance to Reach Mars will open Thursday night at WKU's Hardin Planetarium. The show will be presented at 7pmCT on Tuesday, 7pmCT on Thursday and 2pmCT on Sunday through February 18, 2021. Hardin Planetarium is located on the corner of State St & 15th Ave, at 1906 College Heights Blvd, Bowling Green, KY.
NASA's Perseverance Rover will reach Mars on February 18, 2021, to begin its search for signs of ancient microbial life, and characterizing environmental conditions that could affect future astronauts living and working on Mars. Perseverance will be only the fifth rover to attempt landing on Mars - when less than 50% of the missions ever sent to Mars by any space agency have been successful. The mission for this 1-ton, compact-car sized, nuclear-powered science laboratory on 6-wheels is to navigate around Jezero Crater's ancient river delta, analyzing 3.5 billion-year old samples formed when Mars was still wet.
The 35-minute presentation is free of charge and suitable for all ages. No ticket required and no reservations are accepted. It will begin on time, with no late entrance permitted. Masks are to be worn at all times within the building.
Our temporarily limited capacity provides for substantial distancing in Hardin Planetarium's large spaces. Guest names and phone numbers will be collected for contact tracing, and seating is assigned by planetarium staff. Shortly before the show, attendees will be guided to their assigned seats within the domed star chamber. While waiting to be seated, guests are encouraged to explore the exhibits, moving counter-clockwise through the Ring Hall.
