Bullock Texas State History Museum presents "Beyond Planet Earth: The Future of Space Exploration" opening day
The Moon. A near-Earth asteroid. Mars. Jupiter. In the not-too-distant future, human missions will launch from Earth to these destinations."Beyond Planet Earth: The Future of Space Exploration" envisions these 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 visitors to smell outer space, simulate a liquid mirror telescope, deflect asteroids in a digital kiosk, learn about terraforming, and even fly over the moon. 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.
The exhibition will be on display through January 12, 2020.
