Dare Mighty ThingsDare Mighty Things: Exploring Mars with Perseverance

Karshan Center of Graphic Art
Open September 18, 2021 through November 7, 20212

NASA's Mars 2020 mission has brought another rover down to the surface of the Red Planet - this time known as Perseverance. The Perseverance rover may help us answer if life ever arose on Mars as it allows scientists to search for signs of ancient microbes in a river delta within the 28-mile wide Jezero Crater. To celebrate the mission's achievements thus far, the exhibit highlights a collection of high resolution images captured by the rover as it remotely explores the planet. Dramatic views from Perseverance's harrowing landing, beautiful panoramas of the Martian surface, closeup shots of geological points of interest, and photos of the Ingenuity Helicopter drone in flight during its technology demonstration, is on display to emphasize our continued drive to understand Mars. This spirit of exploration is captured in the mission's slogan: Dare Mighty Things.
