Space Enthusiasts Can Indulge Themselves at the Mission Mars Exhibit

Experience a virtual Martian sunset, climb into a simulated Orion capsule and feel the texture of rock cliffs inspired by the red planet in our brand-new interactive exhibit, Mission Mars, now open.

Discover what it takes to travel to Mars, what hardware will get us to the fourth planet in our solar system and how humans may live on the red planet in the next few decades. Space Center Houston worked closely with NASA in the development of the Mission Mars exhibit, which guides visitors through NASA’s journey to Mars, beginning with a look at how our view of the red planet has changed through the ages.

Find out what goals NASA aims to achieve by exploring Mars and what the red planet can teach us about Earth and the universe. Touch a real piece of Mars and see a collection of three other rare Mars meteorites. Don’t miss your chance to see and touch an actual piece of the red planet in Mission Mars!

Step outside of our welcoming and comfortable community at The Co-Op at Med Center Apartments in Houston, Texas for the day! This event promises to be a wonderful time!
