"Since the beginning of time, people have been entranced by the night sky and by our nearest planetary neighbour - Mars.
From the early missions to Viking, Pathfinder and the more recent missions – Mars has been (and is) a challenging destination.
The Mars Exploration Rovers landed on Mars in January 2004 and have been successfully exploring ever since.
Come hear the story of their legacy and our newest rover on Mars - the Mars Science Laboratory Curiosity Rover.”
Nagin Cox is visiting Northern Ireland as part of the U.S. Department of State’s Speaker Program, facilitated by the U.S. Consulate in Belfast.
