The Starmus VI, one of the world-scale science and art festivals will take place in September 2022 in Yerevan, Armenia, to celebrate science communication with world-class scientists, artists and astronauts.
The STARMUS VI will be dedicated to Mars, from the very first Soviet MARS 3 to the ambitious manned landing plans and spectacular NASA missions.
It has been 50 years since MARS 3 performed the first soft landing on the Red Planet and sent back to the Earth the first image of its surface. This milestone was followed by dozens of successful missions by NASA providing us with more accurate images and information from our neighbor in the Solar System. Following the established tradition, the Festival will address pressing issues and screen films about the exploration of Mars.
Previous film screenings included the documentary Apollo 11 and The Spacewalker, a film about the legendary Russian astronaut and Starmus Board Member Alexei Leonov.
