Sci-Quest joins in space fun

Sci-Quest, Hands-on Science Center will offer space exploration enthusiasts the opportunity to touch a piece of Mars, take a spin on a space bike, and tour a full-scale future lunar habitat and more in the new exhibit Space: A Journey to Our Future, opening June 19. Space: A Journey to Our Future examines the history of our space program, brings to life current projects in space exploration – satellites, space telescopes, living in space – and provides a glimpse of future human space travel through highly advanced interactive displays. Space: A Journey to Our Future is one of the largest touring exhibits ever produced on space exploration.
Exhibit highlights include:
Mission to Mars: Through hands-on interactive displays and modules, visitors can design their own trip to Mars, by taking a spin on a centrifuge space bicycle, to the design of the spacecraft and living quarters, and ultimately finding out how successful their trip would be.
Space Exploration Artifacts: Visitors will see a wide range of artifacts from the past and present space program including space suits, a lunar rover tire, a camera from the Apollo program, early fuel cells and shuttle tiles.
Lunar Base Camp: Would-be explorers can literally step into the future and interact aboard a re-created future base camp on the lunar surface as they walk through a full-size habitat and work pod.
Today’s Space Program: This interactive area examines the International Space Station, deep space probes, next generation telescopes, and NASA studies in robonauts.
Representatives from NASA, National Science Teachers Association, Lockheed Martin, and national partner General Motors, served on an educational committee for the exhibit to ensure accuracy and relevance in the exhibit’s educational message.
Space: A Journey to Our Future was produced by Evergreen Exhibitions.
Space: A Journey to Our Future will be at Sci-Quest until Sept. 6, 2010. During this time, Sci-Quest will have the following extended summer hours: Monday – Thursday: 9 a.m. – 7 p.m.; Friday – Saturday: 9 a.m. – 9 p.m.; and Sunday: 11 a.m. – 7 p.m. Hours are subject to change, visit www.sci-quest.org or call 256-837-0606 for current information.
