Packed with engaging, hands-on interactive exhibits and dazzling imagery, this exhibition will connect you with current NASA science research and launch you on a journey to explore the universe!

Planetary Landscapes: Works by Ned Kahn - Imagine passing your hand through a cauldron of billowing fog, activating a vortex akin to the dust devils in Jupiter’s atmosphere, or sculpting sand dunes like those on Mars. Internationally renowned artist Ned Kahn brings these experiences to life through the exhibition Planetary Landscapes.

Kahn’s interactive sculptures are designed to explore, in constantly varying patterns, the dynamic forces that shape our solar system. In Planetary Landscapes, Ned Kahn has created an entire family of artwork that brings vast natural processes within our reach, and sends our imaginations on a journey through the cosmos.
