The red planet Mars has been worshipped as the God of anger and war since the ancient times. Now we know, Mars is not only the second nearest planet after Venus, it has got all the potential to harbour past, present as well as future life. Quite naturally, the red planet remained the centre of attraction in the recent decades. India created a history in space exploration when Mangalyaan, the first Indian space probe to Mars, reached successfully its destination. The present planetarium programme highlights the triumphs and tribulations of Indian scientists involved in the space programme. The programme also discusses all the important findings by different international explorations over the years which has only strengthened our resolve to transform planet Mars as the second abode of the human kind in the near future. The spectacular discoveries and some historical anecdotes come alive on the planetarium dome with its newly installed wide format video projection and a renovated audio delivery system.
