Have a glimpse of humanity's fascination with the universe at this exhibition, jointly curated and organised by Mori Art Museum and ArtScience Museum, which features artefacts from the Asian Civilisations Museum. Divided into four sections, you'll get to peruse historical religious texts on the cosmos and learn about the birth of astronomy. Then, explore new astronomical advances, black holes and dark matter, as well as questions about alien life, robotics and the future of mankind through artworks. Finally, view and ponder about art pieces that are specifically designed to be flown and exhibited in space. 

There's also a host of activities including guided tours, workshops and a screening of Look at the Earth from the Universe – a compilation of videos that looks at humanity from the viewpoint of the cosmos, as interpreted by artists.

:-) A fan of super-powered heroes movies - when I visit exhibition, I imagine infinity stones and special gauntlets etc. Cheers.
