Moving to Mars online program

NASA is working to send humans to Mars, and the launch of the Perseverance rover is the next step in their ambitious plan! Dr. Jean Creighton, Director of the UWM Planetarium, will explore what we’ve learned about the habitability of the red planet and how we are preparing for this next great space adventure. Registration is required for this virtual event. All are welcome, although the program is targeted for those ages five and older.

At Home Mars Activities

Tickets are offered on a “pay what you can” sliding scale.

We realize that not everyone may be in a financial position to support us. We still want you to join us in any case. If you are in a position to purchase tickets, you are supporting our talented team of undergraduate students who help design our programs (including this one) and assist with many other aspects of our operations. 

Bonus offer: Pay $15 and get an individual membership with your ticket (a $50 value). A membership gets you free access to all of our shows for one year (online and at the planetarium when we resume in-person programming).
