Good news, you don't have to sit still this summer! The UGent Armand Pien public observatory is reopening its doors to the public today, and has prepared a lot of fresh Mars science for you :

  • an exhibition on Mars (both Dutch and English), with scientific input from the BIRA-IASB researchers (from the NOMAD-instrument on board ExoMars TGO)
  • a Mars-themed night (adapted to the measures concerning a certain generally known virus) with a lecture by Koen Geukens, on August 5 (in Dutch)
  • an online crash course "Leven zoeken op Mars" (in Dutch), with Pieter Mestdagh, who specialises in astrobiology within the Solar System
