Worldwide AstroFest 2021: Destination Mars


Registration has now ended. Please come back soon for future events.

Join us for an evening on the Red Planet. You’ll hear from expert speakers and then watch live as NASA’s Perseverance rover lands at Jezero Crater to begin a new era of Mars exploration. This online presentation begins on 18 February at 7:30pm GMT and will last about two hours (depending on events on Mars!). Speakers include: Sanjeev Gupta, Imperial College London, a participant in the NASA and ESA rover missions; Omran Sharaf, Project Director of the Emirates Mars Mission which just arrived at the red planet; and Lucy Berthoud of Thales Alenia Space & the University of Bristol, who will speak about returning a sample of Mars to Earth.
