After Dark
Mars (Clip)
Date: August 24, 2012
Running Time: 00:01:56

At our last After Dark in our current home, the theme was Mars! On display the museum has a full-scale model of the Mars rover Curiosity, which arrived on the red planet Sunday, August 5. At After Dark, we had Martians, robots, and extraterrestrials in the crowd! There were Martian themed lectures, a live webcast, and activities like the Egg Drop, where visitors practiced landing a homemade Rover safely onto the ground. Red skies at night offer fun and delight.
After Dark is an evening series exclusively for adults that mixes cocktails, conversation, and playful, innovative science and art programs. Check out videos from these exciting events.
