12.36. Facing Mars

February 15, 2012

Would you survive the journey to Mars? That is what the Facing Mars at the Lack Gallery in the Grand Rapids Public Museum tries to answer. Visitors will experience the physical, psychological and scientific challenges of traveling to and living on Mars – selecting the optimal flight crew, building and launching rockets, “flying over” the Martian landscape, “walking on Mars” and trying their hand at mission control. With more than 20 thought-provoking and interactive exhibits, guests conduct their own personal analysis to decide whether or not they would survive a journey complete with isolation, space sickness, medical emergencies and more.

Tuesday 9:00 AM to 8:00 PM, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday & Saturday 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Sunday Noon to 5:00 PM, Closed Mondays
