Who We Are
The mission of the Department of Space Sciences (DSS) is to educate Museum visitors and our local community with accurate and scientifically sound information regarding space sciences. We accomplish this by communicating up-to-date space sciences information through the Space Odyssey exhibition and public programming. DSS includes research staff with expertise in planetary science, space science, astrobiology, and astrophysics. Most of the department's collections are digital. The Space Sciences Newsroom is a digital media center with staff and volunteers who produce and maintain a collection of up-to-date resources used in Space Odyssey and space sciences programming.
