Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be an astronaut? Well thanks to Fernbank Museum, ATLiens will get a hands-on experience, climbing aboard this transformative exhibit that plans to delve into what it takes to travel to, work in, and live surrounded by space!
Explore the vacuum of space, radiation, meteoroids, and temperature extremes of this extraordinary environment, while aboard an orbiting space station, and that’s just the beginning.
“Journey to Space,” will be on view fro022 m Oct. 8, 2until Jan. 1, 2023. The exhibit highlights the excitement of cosmic travel, the physical issues that arise with space exploration, the challenges of gravitational weightlessness, to infinity and beyond!
The exhibition will delight science enthusiasts with a combination of impressive objects and hands-on opportunities that allow patrons to better understand the science of space travel. Visitors will have the opportunity to explore historic space-related attire and protective gear, including Neil Armstrong’s gloves, an Apollo helmet, space suit sleeves, meteoroid shields and more.
They will also gain the unique perspective of how spacesuits are engineered to protect astronauts from the many dangers they encounter while in orbit. Through games, multimedia components, and interactive exhibits, you’ll learn so much including hilarious (yet interesting) facts like how astronauts eat, sleep, and even go to the bathroom in space.
Presented by the Science Museum of Minnesota and the California Science Center. With support from NASA, so you know it’s legit!
Also opening on Oct. 8 is the giant screen film, “Astronaut: Ocean to Orbit.” Planned to open alongside the space-themed exhibit, this film explores the ways NASA uses underwater environments to simulate life and work in space.
