NASA's Mars 2020 rover mission is set to launch in the summer of 2020.

It will explore the planet's geology, test for signs of life, and analyze the potential habitability of Earth's neighboring world for humans, all while collecting samples to bring back home. Join mission scientist and Brown University professor Jack Mustard to discover how the landing site was chosen and discover how Mars 2020 is already setting the stage for future trips to the red planet.

In 2020, the Museum is celebrating the legacy of Charles Hayden, whose vision made the Hayden Planetarium possible and brought the universe to New York City.

Please note: There is no late seating in the Hayden Planetarium Space Theater. Guests arriving after the program starts will not be permitted to enter the dome.

Worlds Beyond Earth is dedicated to the memory of Charles Hayden in celebration of the 150th anniversary of his birth and made possible by the generous support of the Charles Hayden Foundation.

Support for Hayden Planetarium Programs is provided by the Horace W. Goldsmith Endowment Fund.

Selected Hayden Planetarium Programs are sponsored by JetBlue.
