Event Series Event Series: Forward to the Moon

Forward to the Moon

February 10, 2023 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Forward to the Moon engages audiences in NASA efforts to send both humans and robots to the Moon and Mars. NASA’s 21st century Artemis program, named after the Greek moon Goddess and twin of Apollo, is the next step in our mission to explore the universe and land the first woman on the surface of the Moon. Jessica Meir from Caribou, Maine has been selected as one of the Artemis Mission astronauts and might be the first Mainer on the Moon — learn about it here at the planetarium.

Narrated by Kari Byron from CrashTest World and Mythbusters.


Tickets for planetarium programs are $7 for Adults, $6 for UMaine Students/Veterans/Senior Citizens, and $5 for children under 12. Click here to view the Versant Power Astronomy Center  calendar.
