Pluto may have had a big week with the New Horizon's fly by, but the Discovery Center took time to celebrate something else in the solar system.
Today's Family Friday was "Journey to Mars." Families attended astronaut academy, worked on designing a Mars rover, and even sampled some astronaut food.
Family Friday's take place every week from 11 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and have a weekly theme.
Next week is Minecraft themed. Tickets are included in Discovery Center Admission.
