Learn about Mars and you learn about Earth. So says Dr. Steven Lee, expert on the Red Planet and scientific advisor for MarsQuest, an interactive exhibition on view through May 6 at the Orlando Science Center. “We want to present ‘Mars, the National Park,’ ” Lee said. “We want to take people to a few places on the surface that are a lot like Earth – volcanoes, polar caps, clouds, dry riverbeds. People can relate to that.” The sleek exhibition – with a concept strong on scientific fact, working in concert with solid visual design – provides visitors with astute insights into our solar system’s fourth and third planets. It features 16 interactive displays, five computer stations, two videos, seven scale models and a theater with high-definition video images of Mars.
