National Geographic Live: Mankind to Mars

National Geographic >

The year is 2032. Welcome aboard the first manned mission to Mars. Ahead of you lies about 45 million miles of empty space, followed by an 18-month assignment on a planet of globe-spanning dust storms, average temperatures of -55°C (-70°F) and a toxic atmosphere of carbon dioxide. This is the most thrilling adventure of your life, and National Geographic space expert Andrew Fazekas, The Night Sky Guy, is excited to take you there.

Produced in tandem with National Geographic Channel’s groundbreaking new miniseries, MARS, this lively conversation finds Fazekas making predictions about the epic voyage with leading Mars authorities. Meanwhile, stunning feature-film-quality visuals and expert interviews produced by Ron Howard, Brian Grazer and Michael Rosenberg explore how those predictions may play out. Our first footstep on Mars is as close as two decades away, and Mankind to Mars offers a glimpse into the minds of the brilliant scientists and engineers who are working to take our next giant leap.

This event is presented by the Seattle Symphony.
