Planetary Radio Live: Mars InSight Landing - Viewing Party and Discussion

Pasadena, California, United States

NASA's Insight landing on Mars (artist's concept)

Join us for a Planetary Radio Live event at Caltech as the newest visitor from Earth lands on the Red Planet. InSight is the first robotic explorer built to study the interior of Mars and take the planet's vital signs, including its pulse and its temperature. Together, we will watch NASA's live coverage of the landing, which will come from the InSight Team at the Caltech-managed Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Mat Kaplan, host of Planetary Radio, will host a panel of experts who will provide additional commentary on the Beckman Auditorium stage.

Please RSVP for this FREE, public event. Light refreshments will be provided.

Doors open at 10:30 a.m. Touch down on Mars is expected around noon, with the first images expected soon thereafter.

Seating will be on a first come, first served basis. An RSVP does NOT guarantee entry. Once the venue is at capacity, we will not be allowed to admit additional people on the list. Parking will be limited, so we recommend that you arrive early enough to find street parking and take your seat by 10:45 a.m.

Support for this event is provided by Caltech's Office of Strategic Communications and the Campbell Mars Exploration Fund at The Planetary Society.
