ACS Program-in-a-Box: Chemistry Rocks! Exploring the Chemistry of Rocks and Minerals

Tuesday Oct 23

7:00 PM - 8:00 PM @ Center for the Sciences

Humankind has always strived to unlock the celestial secrets of our closest planetary neighbor. We have come a long way since early astronomers gazed through simple telescopes and theorized about massive canals on the Red Planet. Orbital satellites have begun to map its surface in detail and nuclear-powered rovers are working to unlock the chemical and geologic secrets.

Celebrate National Chemistry Week by gathering a group for a mission to explore the chemistry of Mars! Join us live as our panel of experts shares what we know about the planet and the steps that need to be taken to safely send men and women to walk on its surface. Discover the challenges of long-term space travel and the materials, biochemistry, and astrochemistry that will help make this mission possible.
