Landing on Planets Series: Landing on Mars - the InSight Mission

Monday 26 November 2018, 10.00PM – 11.30PM Special Events Area, Qatar National Library, Education City, Doha, Qatar

Take advantage of this rare opportunity to watch LIVE streaming at Qatar National Library from NASA Mission Operation.

InSight, short for “Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy and Heat Transport,” is a Mars lander designed to give the Red Planet its first thorough checkup since it formed 4.5 billion years ago. It is the first outer space robotic explorer to study in-depth the ‘inner space’ of Mars: its crust, mantle, and core.

Be part of the debate with guest speakers from NASA and the European Space Agency on why and how we land on planets.

If you plan to attend, kindly register online and collect your access card from the Library. Since the event takes place after the Library’s opening hours, attendance will not be possible unless access cards have been collected in advance.
