The Feet Science Center announces the newest addition to its permanent exhibit collection: Sun, Earth, Universe. Opening on Saturday, July 20, this interactive exhibition explores the fascinating world of space science and astronomy.
How is Earth changing? What is it like on other planets? Does life exist beyond Earth? What’s happening on the Sun, and how does it affect us? Sun, Earth, Universe is a new exhibition about our planet, the solar system, the universe and the big questions NASA is trying to answer about each one of them. Packed with engaging, hands-on interactive exhibits and dazzling imagery, this 600-square-foot exhibition will connect visitors with current NASA science research and launch them on a journey to explore the universe.
Sun, Earth, Universe includes fun and compelling exhibits for visitors of all ages. Follow the design-build-test cycle of engineering and build a model spacecraft for a mission to space. Spin a tumbler of 10,000 beads, representing all of the stars we can see from Earth to search for the unique one that represents our Sun. Reveal hidden images using the same tools NASA scientists employ to explore the otherwise invisible forces and energy of the universe. Take a break in the seating area and play the Your Mission to Space board game, or help younger visitors pilot rovers across the Mars landscape play table.
The fun experiences in Sun, Earth, Universe introduce visitors to ongoing NASA research in the fields of heliophysics, Earth science, planetary science and astrophysics, as well as encouraging them to imagine what the future of Earth and space science might hold.
Sun, Earth, Universe opens to the public on Saturday, July 20, in the Fleet’s Main Exhibit Gallery and is included with museum admission
The Sun, Earth, Universe exhibition will be on display at the Fleet Science Center as part of a nationwide effort designed to engage audiences in the awe-inspiring fields of Earth and space science.
