Super Stellar Friday: “NASA's Messenger Mission to Mercury”
January 30, 2009 @ 12:00 am EST
Why do we need to go to Mercury? How can we do it with such extreme temperatures? Solar System Ambassador Sally Jensen will answer these questions and show images from the past two flybys. She will discuss what we have learned from the mission so far, what we hope to learn, and how orbit insertion will take place in March 2011.
Recommended for ages 8+, children under 13 must be accompanied by an adult.
