Attention Space Nerds: This Exhibit Will Be Right Up Your Alley

The Moon. Mars. Jupiter. A near-Earth asteroid. In the not-too-distant future, human missions will launch from Earth to these destinations. Opening September 2019, "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 at Bullock Texas State History Museum, which 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.

“Beyond Planet Earth: The Future of Space Exploration” is organized by the American Museum of Natural History, New York, in collaboration with MadaTech: The Israel National Museum of Science, Technology & Space, Haifa, Israel.

Support for the Bullock Museum's exhibitions and education programs is provided by the Texas State History Museum Foundation.

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! "Beyond Planet Earth: The Future of Space Exploration" will be on display through January 12, 2020.
