Mars: The Ultimate Voyage

July 1, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Join us on a journey to the Red Planet — the farthest voyage ever made by humans. What does it take to make a two year mission to Mars, and back, successful? Discover the many challenges astronauts will face – and how creativity, communication and collaboration are essential for deep space exploration. This production looks into NASA research and training to address these critical needs. It also aims to inspire the next generation of STEM professionals!

This production is a collaboration by the Bell Museum & UNC Morehead Planetarium and Science Center. The work was funded by a NASA Teams Engaging Affiliated Museums and Informal Institutions (TEAM II) Award 80NSSC20M0028 to the Bell Museum through the Regents of the University of Minnesota.

The program is followed by a brief tour of the current evening sky using our Zeiss ZKP-4 optical star projector.

Show length ~35 min.

A calendar has been created called the This is Kingsport events calendar which will serve as a non-public forum to provide citizens with information about social and organizational gatherings held within the city. The city will disseminate information to the public through this online calendar about social and organizational gatherings which are conducted or promoted by community partners with which the city currently has partnership agreements. Additionally, social or organizational gatherings held on city owned property to which the public at large is invited will be published on this calendar.

Each year the city enters into partnership agreements with multiple community partners some of whom in turn support the city by organizing events or promoting events of members and affiliates. By creating a common source for the dissemination of information about community events the city will be furthering its support of those community partners which in turn support the city. Moreover, the city wishes to and will benefit from highlighting gatherings which will be of benefit and enjoyment to the public.

Community partners may communicate their events or those which they promote to the city which will disseminate the information through the event calendar. Furthermore, the city of Kingsport will publish on the calendar those community events which are held on city property. In order to achieve the city’s goals only those events described herein will be published on the This is Kingsport event calendar which will be curated by city staff.
