Science: Curiosity Landing Event @ DMNS

  • Aug 5, 2012 · 8:00 PM
  • Denver Museum of Nature and Science

***THIS EVENT HAS BEEN SOLD OUT***

Hi alll,

Thought this also might be of interest to some of you.  Please only RSVP "Yes" (just so other heathens know how many will be attending).  Feel free to talk amongst yourselves to organize for dinner before or drinks after.  This is not a formal meetup, just another something cool and fun.  This one is likely to go past midnight (the actual landing is tenatively set for 11:30pm) so be sure and schedule a nap for yourselves:

 

Sunday, August 5
8:00 p.m.
$8 member, $10 nonmember, $5 child (ages 3-12)

 

In another historic moment in space exploration, NASA's Mars Science Laboratory mission is preparing to land the "mega-rover" Curiosity, the largest and most advanced mobile laboratory ever to operate on the surface of another planet. The spacecraft was launched in November 2011, and will arrive at Mars on August 5 around 11:30 p.m. MDT. Curiosity's assignment: assess whether the landing area has ever had or still has environmental conditions favorable to supporting microbial life and search for clues in the rocks about possible past life. Join the Museum's Mars scientist Steve Lee and other local experts to learn about this ambitious mission and what's in store for the new rover, look over the shoulders of mission controllers during live NASA TV coverage of the landing, and maybe even see Curiosity's first views of its new home on the Red Planet.

    Parking is ridiculous

    Correction. Just got confirmation email from DMNS. Looks like they are assigning a general seating section depending on when you registered for the program.

    I printed out my ticket at the kiosk at the museum today and there is no seat number. Looks like free for all.

    Does anyone know if its assigned seating or just a free for all?

    I didn't get a ticket before they sold out. If anyone has a friend who canceled or somehow comes across an extra ticket.... Hit me up! Or are there enough people who didn't get tickets that we can plan an alternate event such as happy hour to drink away the pain of not attending this event?

      When you say we can get into the museum, you mean just the main museum but not attend the event?

      Oh well. Sadly this isn't the first time a DMNS event was sold out from under me. Didn't learn my lesson apparently.

    Just checked the link to the Museum. Museum site says tickets are now sold out. Have fun to the lucky ones who got tickets! Hopefully more fun visits can be scheduled later.
