The world watched and rejoiced when NASA’s Mars rover Curiosity successfully landed on the red planet last month.

Curiosity has dug into bedrock, captured photos and videos, and researched whether the Martian environment could have been favorable for life.

This fall, Lourdes invites audiences of all ages to continue the exploration of Mars at the Appold Planetarium.

Narrated by award-winning actress Miriam Margoyles, Mars takes viewers on an exciting trip to the red planet — deep into canyons where water once flowed, high above volcanoes, and turning around polar ice caps.

Join in the latest discoveries from a new generation of Mars spacecraft and examine the science (and science fiction) surrounding Mars and the quest to find water, and perhaps even life.

Showing will be at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 22, and Saturday, Sept. 29.

Admission is $5 for adults and $4 for children under 12 and for Lourdes students presenting their student ID. Shows at the Appold Planetarium are limited to 50 and often sell out.

For more information or to purchase tickets contact Dr. Laura Megeath, Appold Planetarium coordinator, email planetarium@lourdes.edu or call at 419-517-8897.
