This event has passed.


There’s more in outer space than stars and planets! Come explore the mysteries of other celestial objects at Discovery Center’s new temporary exhibition—Comets, Asteroids, and Meteors: Great Balls of Fire!

Take yourself on an astronomical adventure as you climb into a “spaceship” and blast off to the asteroid belt and Jupiter on a mission to gather data about asteroids and comets. Role play as an “explorer-in-training” to gather data about differences asteroids and planets, and comets. Find out what happens back on Earth as you take an interactive look at meteors and impacts through a variety of experiences. Your family will want to stay and explore more in this colorful exhibition developed by the Space Science Institute (SSI).
