Just 34 million miles across the solar system - Mars may be our nearest neighbour, but how much do we know about the red planet? Do little green martians really exist? Is Matt Damon still there? Can life exist at such incredibly low temperatures?
Before the launch of the ExoMars Rover in July this year, W5 will be blasting off on its own 'Mission to Mars' and beaming back to planet earth to tell you more about some of the amazing science happening out there very soon! In this great new interactive science show, you’ll find out exactly why they’ll be sniffing for smelly gases and discovering just how challenging it is to drive and control a buggy on a rocky planetary surface.
So, buckle up, put a clothes peg on your nose - see you there!
Mission to Mars will take place in AMAZE - the new, interactive exhibition space in W5 and is running on weekends until 31 May, and daily over Easter period (4-19 April). FREE with admission. Please see W5 staff upon arrival for times.
