Kids intrigued by the great beyond can discover what may lie ahead by walking through a diorama of the Martian surface, examining a full-size re-creation of a lunar habitat and planning a mission to make Mars habitable. Astronauts-in-training see what it might be like to return to the moon or to land on and deflect a potentially deadly asteroid. The exhibit ends with a stunning 64-square-foot, 3-D hologram that puts museumgoers inthe center of thousands of exoplanets.
