Science on Site: Mars InSight Mission Roadshow

May 19 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

Free with Museum admission.

NASA’s InSight mission will be the first interplanetary launch from the West Coast, set for May 5 from Vandenberg Air Force Base.

In preparation for its May launch, the Mars InSight Roadshow is bringing family-friendly science activities to communities throughout California, making comparisons between earthquakes and the marsquakes that InSight will try to detect.

Stop by the Museum’s Space Lab for the following activities:

(1) “Make Your Own Marsquake” demo, in which members of the public jump and see seismometer readings on a screen; (2) Chat with NASA scientists and engineers; (3) Take space selfies; (4) View models of the InSight spacecraft; and (5) Explore Mars globe “cutaways” showing the interior of Mars.

FREE with paid Museum admission. Info: Call Stefanie Coleman at 805-682-4711 ext. 170 or email
