Al Amal (Hope) Mission to Mars

Sipping on Stonehenge

Thursday, Oct. 21
7 p.m
Ricketson Auditorium
$12 member, $15 nonmember
Join WorldDenver and the Denver Museum of Nature & Science as we explore Mars through the lens of the Al Amal (Hope) spacecraft orbiter, which reached the Red Planet on Feb. 9. The historic Mission to Mars was accomplished by an international collaboration between the University of Colorado Boulder's Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP) who assembled the craft and the United Arab Emirates' Mohammed bin Rashid Space Centre. Live from the Ricketson Auditorium, we'll be joined by scientists and engineers from LASP and a spokesperson from the UAE to discuss their unique global partnership, while viewing incredible footage from the orbiter itself. Beer and wine will be available for purchase from the cash bar beginning at 6:30 p.m.
Our promise to you is an unwavering commitment to safe spaces for all who visit the Museum. We ask that all participants observe physical distancing and wear a face covering when not eating or drinking. Thank you.

Events are subject to change based upon federal, state or local health guidance.  All sales are final unless the Museum cancels the event.
