Curiosity on Mars

It's time to drill into Mars' past.

 

Using Hardin Planetarium's new state-of-the-art digital imaging technology, we will take you to the surface of Mars, where Curiosity, the most powerful exploratory rover in either of our two worlds, is currently using its incredible technology to answer one of humanity's oldest questions: Is there, or was there, life on Mars? Combining full-dome videos, the simulation potential of our new digital projector, amazing images shot from Mars itself, and stirring music, we ask this question and many others in this Hardin Planetarium original presentation.
