Saturdays in May at 3:30pm:

Dateline MARS

An armada of orbiters and rovers are currently operating at Mars, with more soon to arrive. Designed to take advantage of the Red Planet's close approach to Earth, "Dateline Mars" combines live presentation and the latest images and discoveries from Mars.

The show will look at Mars in three distinct ways. First is the observational perspective because Mars is making its closest approach to Earth since 2005, and we'll show you how to see it. Second is a look at its cultural significance - why has the Red Planet been so popular in mythology, science fiction and movies? And finally, the spacecraft exploration of Mars, from the Curiosity rover to human exploration. The show includes a short fulldome movie on NASA's plans to explore the Red Planet.
