RVCC Planetarium to Present New Show About Traveling to Mars

(BRANCHBURG, NJ) -- The Raritan Valley Community College Planetarium in Branchburg will offer a new show in July, "Mars: The Ultimate Voyage," which will be presented Fridays, July 12 and 19 at 8:00pm. Recommended for ages 8 to adult, the show explores the question: What will it take to get to Mars?

This dynamic, animated experience highlights actual NASA research and initiatives that are preparing the next generation of astronauts to travel to Mars. It illuminates how creativity, collaboration, communication, and expertise in a diverse number of fields are key for the success of deep space travel—while also inspiring the next generation of STEM professionals. The show is produced by the Bell Museum, in partnership with NASA and UNC Morehead Planetarium and Science Center.

Weather permitting, the 3M Observatory—located right outside the RVCC Planetarium—will be open for visitors after the show.

Additional Planetarium shows in July include laser concerts for all ages and children’s programs with themes ranging from Harry Potter to Magic Tree House. For a complete list of all RVCC Planetarium’s shows open to the public, click here.

Planetarium tickets cost $10 for one show, $18 for two shows back-to-back on the same day. Reservations are recommended, but all ticket sales are done at the door on the day of the show. Late admission to Planetarium shows is not permitted. For reservations and information, call 908-231-8805 or email planet@raritanval.edu. For additional information, visit www.raritanval.edu/planetarium.
