The Health Museum in Houston, Texas to be Site of Facing Mars' U.S. Premiere

HOUSTON, May 27 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- On May 30, 2009, the John P. McGovern Museum of Health & Medical Science, also called The Health Museum, will launch the U.S. premiere of Facing Mars. The exhibit features interactive stations that encourage visitors to "walk on Mars," test and launch rockets, "fly over" the Martian landscape and consider the implications humans face in their quest to reach the Red Planet. Facing Mars will be on display through September 7.

This innovative exhibit focuses on the real challenges of sending human explorers to Mars. With more than 28 experiences, Facing Mars combines a range of hands-on experiences with compelling artifacts, such as a rare Mars meteorite from West Africa and stunning imagery to engage participants in the physical, psychological and scientific challenges involved in journeying to Mars.

"How many of us have wondered what it would be like to travel in space? Facing Mars gives our visitors the opportunity to explore the many challenges that confront us when we set out to travel to another planet," said Jon Iszard, President and CEO of The Health Museum.

Facing Mars addresses questions such as: "What happens to your face in space?", "How can you protect astronauts from cosmic rays and solar radiation?" and "Who would you choose for a Mars crew?" Visitors become a rocket scientist for the day and explore the challenges of aerodynamic stability. They experience what it is like "to walk on Mars" at a station that subtracts 60 percent of their weight to simulate Martian gravity. Visitors also explore some of the potential psychological and emotional stresses that astronauts may face on their journey, examining how contagious emotions can be and discovering where their own personal space thresho
