Mars in 3D!
A New Perspective on Mars
June 19, 2012 - September 1, 2012
The European Space Agency’s Mars Express probe is Europe’s first mission to another planet. Since 2004, a stereo camera designed and built by Germany’s space agency, the German Aerospace Center, has been mapping the entire Red Planet and producing colorful, high resolution images. Six natural forces that have significantly formed Mars over billions of years – volcanism, water, ice, erosion, wind, and tectonics – are the focus of the exhibition. Suspended throughout the exhibition are enormous photographs, and with the help of red-blue glasses, visitors will see Mars like they have never been able to before – in 3-D! These images are supplemented with bilingual interpretive signs in English and German with a vast amount of information about the Red Planet, its moons and exploration efforts. The Mars exhibition was developed by the German Aerospace Center, (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt, DLR). Sponsored in part by Frontier Communications and Evans Toyota.
