NASA’s InSight Mission made a successful landing on Mars this week, and the event was streamed live at Qatar National Library (QNL). The InSight Mission is NASA’s first Mars landing since 2012, and will reveal crucial insights on the formation and interior of the red planet.
QNL was the only NASA-registered entity in the Middle East and North Africa to live stream the landing.
The event started with a lecture by Research Scientist Dr Essam Heggy. Attendees also had the opportunity to engage in live conversations with scientists from NASA about the landing and the wider mission.
The event is part of QNL’s Science Book Forum, chaired by Dr Heggy, a science reading initiative that seeks to enable young learners to develop careers in science. To find out more about the forum, visit www.qnl.qa/en/events/science-book-forum.
