Halloween and Space Exploration

Three weeks ago today, NASA’s Curiosity rover landed on the Red Planet. There was joy; there were tears. There were handshakes and high-fives all over the globe. And, here at FrightCatalog, there was Halloween. What would Halloween look like on Mars?, we wondered. Dusty? Cold? Extraterrestrial?

Then, we settled on this adjective: it would be extraordinary. Imagine Mars witches free-floating on broomsticks, or bubbling cauldron props nestled inside craters. Think about freeze-dried, pumpkin-shaped candy. On Mars, would “scary” exist, or would it be absorbed by the atmosphere?

This website, NASA’s Solar System Exploration, features numerous videos of the historic landing, as well as images of Curiosity on Mars.

This Halloween, if you’re looking for a costume that is in line with current events, consider an astronaut costume from FrightCatalog.com. We have a great selection of costumes and accessories that will help you dream big – and, possibly, shoot for the moon (or Mars.)

Finally, we should keep in mind that Halloween and space exploration are not all that different. Both the holiday and the act of exploration are occasions to celebrate what is “beyond” us. Whether it’s the tale of Stingy Jack, which inspired the festive carvings of jack-o’-lanterns, or the landing the Curiosity rover, one of whose missions is to answer the question of whether life ever existed on Mars, both Halloween and space exploration are part of traditions that attempt to answer age-old questions.
