Senior Lecturer Jim Mahon. By early June, more than three months will have elapsed since the Mars arrivals of the UAE’s HOPE and China’s Tianwen 1 orbiters, and of NASA’s Perseverance rover. Show will review the preliminary science from the orbiters, the surface work from Perseverance, and how things have gone with Tianwen 1 sending its lander/rover to the surface in May. Whether everything worked perfectly or there have been glitches, there will be plenty of Martian exploration news to catch up on. Free. Zoom at smc.edu/planetarium.
