British Science Week: Barnes, the ExoMars Rover
9th –  10th March
10am – 5pm

Visit Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre on Saturday 9th or Sunday 10th March during British Science Week to meet Barnes, Aberystwyth University’s full-scale model of the Rosalind Franklin Mars Rover!

The rover is due to launch to Mars in 2020…but what will it look like? How tall is it? What will the instruments do? How will it search for life? Find out the answers to all these questions when you see and explore Barnes on display at Jodrell Bank.

This is a joint mission between the European Space Agency and Russia’s Roscosmos to search for signs of life, past and present, on Mars.

Free with general admission. 

This event is part of Destination Space!
