The floating planet Mars will fill the Natural History Museum next week
For a few days only, the main entrance hall of the Natural History Museum will host a huge floating planet, Mars, which will fill the space.
This is to mark Mars Day 2022 to mark the 6th anniversary of the launch of the first ExoMars mission and NASA’s Perseverance rover exploring Mars for just over a year.
This year, Mars Day falls on March 14 with Mars Time at 11:00 a.m. on that day, both being part of the Greater March Week. On March 14 and 15, visitors to the museum will be greeted by Luke Jerram’s seven-meter-wide Mars art installation, created using NASA photographs of the Red Planet’s surface.
Luke Jerram’s Mars will be on display at Hintze Hall on March 14 and 15 and will be free to view.
It is recommended to book tickets in advance to visit the Natural History Museum, from here.
