Al Amal (Hope) Mission to Mars

Oct 21, 2021


Join WorldDenver and the Denver Museum of Nature & Science as we explore Mars through the lens of the Al Amal (Hope) spacecraft orbiter, which reached the Red Planet on Feb. 9.

The historic Mission to Mars was accomplished by an international collaboration between the University of Colorado Boulder's Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP) who assembled the craft and the United Arab Emirates' Mohammed bin Rashid Space Centre. Live from the Museum’s Ricketson Auditorium, we'll be joined by scientists and engineers from LASP and a spokesperson from the UAE to discuss their unique global partnership, while viewing incredible footage from the orbiter itself.
