Launch a journey far beyond the atmosphere! Explore the science behind rocket propulsion while building the all-new solid-fuel powered Razor rocket, with unique tube fins. Travel to the launch site on launch day and blast the rocket to altitudes approaching 300 feet!
Explore the universe by observing the surface of a star and mastering the use of a small refracting telescope. Enter the Museum’s planetarium to identify moon phases and constellations, investigate and take home real meteorites and tektites and even command a space shuttle landing simulation.
