Of all the planets we can see, Mars has the most been the one to conjure up thoughts of adventure, mystery, and travel. If you have ever wondered what Mars looks like close up, this is your chance to view a collection of 3D images taken by space exploration probes of the Red Planet. There will be samples of the pictures taken by a photographic robotic unit created by the Robotic Lab of Carnegie University. Presenter Karl Kindt will be bringing one of these units to show how it is used on Mars. You will be given a pair of special 3D glasses the evening of the program to use while we explore the surface of the planet. Mr. Kindt will describe various discoveries regarding Mars and how 3D images are made of this neighboring planet. Join us on this journey!
