The ExplorationWorks exhibits running through this summer and fall are all about space. The exploration of Black Holes occurs on an intergalactic scale. The Women in Aerospace exhibit addresses the skills and workforce diversity critical to allowing humans to explore our solar system. Together, these exhibits will stimulate a wide variety of questions and explorations in our visitors.
