From the Moon to Mars - The next giant leap

50 years ago, NASA dared to land men on the Moon. Guest speaker and NASA Ambassador, Jason-Flor Sisante, will discuss the challenges facing the next giant leap: sending humans to Mars!

This event is supported by the David Elder bequest. Some aspects of this talk are technical and it is therefore most suitable for interested adults and older teenagers.

About the Planetarium


The Planetarium at Glasgow Science Centre has been upgraded to a spectacular, state-of-the-art, fulldome digital projection system (what a mouthful!). Our shows are live presenter-led or film based to take you on a journey through the solar system, into the Milky Way Galaxy and beyond, offering a truly out-of-this-world experience. Our spectacular full dome films display 360 degrees across the 15-metre hemispherical dome of the planetarium. It really is spellbinding stuff.
