Our next public show is Saturday, January 19th at 1&3 pm. The Opportunity rover has been operating on Mars for 14+ years-that’s 58 times longer than originally planned! We will celebrate with Mars cake, and a live skype call to one of the Mars rover mission planners. If you have questions about Mars and recent discoveries, he or she’s the one to ask!
Admission is free, but you must make reservations. We are located at 210 Second Street in downtown Lumberton, at the Robeson County Partnership for Children. Phone# 910-735-2147 to make reservations. Note that the planetarium only holds 20 adults, so call in quickly, as seats will fill up fast!
