SALT LAKE CITY — Clark Planetarium's newest exhibit is ready to launch.
The planetarium is hosting NASA and ATK Wednesday and Thursday to present the unveiling of the ATK exhibit of NASA’s new heavy-lift Space Launch System and Orion spacecraft. SLS and Orion are designed to take astronauts to deep space missions, including Mars.
The exhibit will be open to the public through Sunday, March 2.
Guests will be able to explore launch system and flight hardware with an interactive touch screen presentation, take an up-close look at a scale model of NASA’s next rocket, the Space Launch System and multipurpose crew vehicle, the Orion space capsule. Visitors can also have their picture taken as an astronaut.
“The SLS will be NASA’s first exploration-class vehicle since the Saturn V took American astronauts to the moon over 40 years ago," according to NASA. "With its superior lift capability, the SLS will expand our reach in the solar system, allowing astronauts aboard the Orion spacecraft to explore multiple, deep-space destinations including near-Earth asteroids, Lagrange points, the moon and ultimately Mars."
