Planet Pioneers exhibit at MOSH challenges future space explorers

A new hands on exhibit at MOSH challenges future space explorers to survive on mars.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The Museum of Science and History (MOSH) opened a new traveling exhibit on January 22nd called Planet Pioneers. The exhibition challenges future space explorers to find out if they have what it takes to survive on distant planets.  

Check out how we can see rocket launches from the space coast here in Jacksonville. 

This exhibit includes 17 hand on stations that put patrons to the test as they attempt to travel to mars, drive a rover and find out how they will make food water and shelter on a foreign world.

There are some challenging stations as well, trying to land a rocket to deciding where water could be on the planet for example. 

This all in relation to the Artemis missions which are currently set to visit the moon and eventually mars. The last Artemis launch was seen from the First Coast on November 16th 2022. It was the first manned capable aircraft to return to the moon since the end of the Apollo program. 

The exhibit is approachable for all ages but suggested ages are 5-12.  Planet Pioneers will run through April 23rd.  Hopefully it inspires future astronauts.
