Who has Mars fever?
Dr. Merritt does, and he knows a lot of middle school students who have developed the ‘fever’ too!!!
On Thursday evening, at 18:30 (Lugano time), NASA/JPL will be streaming a “Landing Day!” live stream for students. Although it is anticipated that Perseverance won’t touch down on the Mars surface until 2 hours and 25 minutes after the start of the live stream–touchdown is scheduled for 20:55 (Lugano time)–I am confident that there will be lots of interesting programming available (animations/simulations, explanations, interviews, stories, histories, etc.) between 18:30-20:55.
Stay tuned to the YouTube window below as the countdown to Mars continues…
