Wednesday, July 21, 2010

NASA's Kennedy Space Center and Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex have unveiled a new exhibit, Science on a Sphere, at the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame in Titusville. Science on a Sphere is a global display that takes visitors on a three-dimensional journey around the world and throughout the solar system via dynamic, animated images of the atmosphere, oceans and planets.

This engaging new exhibit at the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame will allow students and the general public to examine the planets and moons of our solar system. Guests will be able to learn how space technology can aid in meteorological sciences such as hurricane prediction and global weather trends. The images are displayed onto the surface of a six-foot in diameter suspended sphere in a darkened room, and visitors can walk around the entire globe for a complete perspective of the phenomenon being viewed

Admission is $38 + tax for adults and $28 + tax for children ages 3-11, and includes the Shuttle Launch Experience, Kennedy Space Center Tour, 3D IMAX space films, Astronaut Encounter, all exhibits, and the U.S. Astronaut Hall of Fame.
