Astronomy Live: Mars and Mercury with Carter Emmart
January 28, 2014
Join the Museum’s director of astrovisualization Carter Emmart for an evening seeing two worlds close up thanks to new data recently synthesized by NASA The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter's Context Camera has covered over half the surface of the Red Planet at six-meter resolution. The Mercury MESSENGER mission is sending back images being made into maps that are allowing us to see the closest world to the Sun better than ever before. The terrain height has also been measured on both worlds, so together with these high-resolution image maps, the Hayden can virtually take us there to experience the similarities and differences in stunning detail.
Support for Hayden Planetarium Programs is provided by the Schaffner Family.
