Are volcanoes still active on Mars? What does Mars smell like? Where did the water that was once on Mars go? Get answers to these questions—and ask your own — in this family-friendly livestream flyover of Mars on the American Museum of Natural History's YouTube. Using OpenSpace, NASA-funded space visualization software, museum scientists will fly over canyons, hover past impact craters, and trace the trackways of rovers.
