Beginning with the mini mission, families will work together to restore communications with the Curiosity Rover on Mars. Once the mission is complete, a planetarium show will explore the relationship between the Earth, Moon and Sun with the help of Coyote, an amusing character adapted from Native American oral traditions who has many misconceptions about Earth and its most familiar neighbors. After the planetarium show, a laser light show, iPop Laser, will feature light art set to the music from popular artists like Justin Bieber, Katy Perry and more.
