PROGRAM DESCRIPTION

Location: Level 1

Explore the cosmos. Visit Mars. Make your own discoveries!

As you emerge from an entry corridor with views of space, a dramatic Martian canyon lies to your right. To your left, dust and gas swirl in giant nebulae. This is Space Odyssey, where the universe is yours to explore-and where space news headlines are brought to life.

Let knowledgeable Museum Galaxy Guides lead the way as you investigate using hands-on exhibits, live performances, and demonstrations.

Astronaut on Mars, Mars Outpost
Step up to the window of a diorama and look at Candor Chasma on Mars. Watch an "astronaut" conduct research, and ask questions via walkie-talkie to find out about living in space. Stop at the Experiment Bar to make discoveries about Mars.

Space Demos
Check out Space Today News, Science on a Sphere, DMNS Weather Central, Mission: Superchill, Zero Gravity Training, Galileo and the Leaning Tower of Pizza, and other space demos.

Museum Galaxy Guides
Specially trained Museum Galaxy Guides use state-of-the-art teaching tools to answer your questions about the universe. Includes Seasons and Moon Phases carts, Orbits table, Spectroscopy cart, and much more.
