Mars Day! is an annual event at the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum that celebrates the Red Planet with a variety of educational and fun family activities. Visitors will be able to interact one-on-one with Museum scientists, as well as scientists from the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History and NASA, who are active in Mars research and mission planning. Visitors can see a real meteorite that came from Mars, learn about Mars missions, explore the Museum’s new Mars exhibit with the curator, see amazingly detailed images from the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, view the surface of Mars in 3-D, learn about the geology of Mars, and more.
Mars Day! is made possible by the generous support of KRAFT Macaroni and Cheese.
