One year since Curiosity landed on Mars, MSUM celebrates its success

Last August, NASA’s revolutionary Curiosity rover made a perilous landing on Mars. In the last year, it has taken some amazing photographs and bitten into the surface of the Red Planet.

The program “Martian Curiosities” at the MSUM Planetarium Saturday, August 10 at 7 p.m. will celebrate the landing of Curiosity. The audience will have the opportunity to look at some of the photos in full dome splendor and explore what Curiosity has learned about a fascinating planet.

General admission for all shows at the planetarium is $5. Admission for children (12 and under), senior citizens (62 and up) and Tri-college students is $2.50.

The Planetarium is located on the MSUM campus in Bridges Hall, Room 167 at 11th St. and 8th Ave. S in Moorhead. Please use the south entrance to Bridges Hall.
