Living on Mars

Living on Mars



When: Thursday 15 May, 7- 8.30pm (doors open at 6.30pm)

Where: Carter Observatory, (top of the Cable Car)

Booking: FREE for star pass holders, $10 general, $5 child/ concession

Email: carterobservatory@wmt.org.nz or phone 04 910 3140

President of the Mars Society New Zealand, Hari Mogosanu joins Carter Observatory on Thursday 15 May to discuss what the human living condition might be like on Mars. Since 2011, Mogosanu has been training at the Mars Desert Research Station in Utah to discover more of the challenges of living conditions for life on Mars.

Throughout the evening, Hari will reveal her discoveries by sharing stories about dehydrated food, living in close quarters and the restrictive conditions, such as taking a walk outside. Hari will point out the drastic comparisons to how we live on earth to living on Mars and the possibilities for living on Mars in the future.

Hari says, “Mars is an achievable goal for humankind, our first step in becoming a spacefaring civilisation. Mars could be our closest laboratory for testing what we know about Earth or, if we find life on it, the proof that life is not a rare event.

Either case the consequences could be spectacular.”

Ticket price includes entry to the talk, telescope viewing (weather-dependent), an exhibition pass and light refreshments. Please note a planetarium show is not included.
