#var:page_name# cover

NASA's InSight mission will be the first interplanetary launch from the West Coast, set for May 5 from Vandenberg Air Force Base. The Mars InSight Roadshow is bringing family-friendly science activities to communities throughout California, making comparisons between earthquakes and the marsquakes that InSight will try to detect. Stop by the Space Lab for the following activities:

• "Make Your Own Marsquake" demo, in which members of the public jump and see seismometer readings on a screen
• Chat with NASA scientists and engineers
• Take space selfies
• View models of the InSight spacecraft
• Explore Mars globe "cutaways" showing the interior of Mars
• Experience what it’s like on Mars with NASA virtual reality headsets

FREE with paid Museum admission.
