HELENA — On Saturday September 14, ExplorationWorks will be debuting their “stellar” new exhibit “Sun, Earth, Universe.”

The exhibition is all about our planet, solar system, the universe and the big questions NASA are trying to answer.

Displays feature real NASA images and there are many hands-on interactive exhibits, including the chance for visitors to build their own spacecraft and test it against the hazards of space.

Matt Jetty, Exhibits and Facilities manager, said it is a great exhibit that helps kids think about their place in a greater universe.

“Space is a fun topic because it is limitless,” said Jetty. “There’s so much stuff we don’t know and it gets kids asking excellent questions.”

“Sun, Earth, Universe” will be on display at ExplorationWorks through the end of the year.

The exhibition was created in collaboration with NASA and developed by a team led by the Science Museum of Minnesota.
