Beyond Planet Earth: The Future of Space Exploration Opening
September 21 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Opening September 2019, Beyond Planet Earth: The Future of Space Exploration envisions future launch missions, humanity’s next steps into our solar system and beyond. The history and science of space exploration will be on view in this immersive exhibition that features more than 20 original artifacts, including a Russian space glove and lunar tire, life-size models and dioramas and videos and interactives allowing you to smell outer space, simulate a liquid mirror telescope, deflect asteroids in a digital kiosk, learn about terraforming and even fly over Mars! Discover futuristic habitats, see NASA’s Curiosity Mars rover, and encounter lifelike environments that separate science fiction from fact and demonstrate what is within reach—and on the horizon in years to come.
This exhibition will run from September 21 through January 12, 2020.
