The Driven to Explore interactive exhibit trailer will be at the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center July 16 from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. PDT. NASA’s Destination Station multi-media exhibit immerses visitors in the story of the International Space Station (ISS). Visitors will learn about the 24/7/365 space-based research that brings results down to Earth to play a role in their lives. They will also learn how the space station operates as a result of a peaceful international partnership of five space agencies representing 15 countries. The exhibit includes hands-on activities, imagery and audio and visual technology to connect visitors with their place in space, communicating the real and potential impacts of the space station on our everyday lives. Open through September 2 only.
