The “Observation of planet Mars week” begins today with telescopes set up in seven points in Athens.
The event will conclude on Sunday, November 27th and is open to the public from 6 to 10 pm. It is being realized in collaboration with the Athens Observatory, in the context of a documentary production of National Geographic entitled «Mars», which tells the adventure of a future conquest and colonization of the red planet, in a not too distant time from now.
The series (which recently made its TV premiere) plays in 2033 having as theme the first manned mission to Mars. Between documentary and fiction, the story unfolds in 6 episodes in which, besides the dramatized scenario, there are excerpts from documentaries and interviews with scientists and entrepreneurs that guide the research and development of space technology.
