Mars Lander Challenge at the Mayo Dark Skies Festival

Calling all future space scientist, come to the Mars Lander Challenge to explore the science of landing a rover on Mars. We will see how the experts in Nasa have done it in the past. Participants will then build a landing system using a parachute and some padding. The landing systems will be tested by dropping them from a height and measuring the forces on it. This exciting workshop will explore topics such as force, acceleration and air resistance.

This workshop will be part of the Mayo Dark Skies Festival 2- 4th Nov Newport.
