Traveling Exhibit Hall
"Great Balls of Fire: Comets, Asteroids, and Meteors"
October 5, 2013 - January 20, 2014
“Great Balls of Fire” will shake your nerves and rattle your brain as you learn why these messengers from space totally rock. This traveling exhibit designed for children ages 5 to 12 explores the wonder of Space. Visitors can take a ride in a “space ship” and determine if scenes from popular movies are science fiction or science fact, get up-close with real meteors and learn more about Comet ISON with Cosmic Mike™.
This work was completed by the Space Science Institute, which was supported by NSF under Grant No. ESI-0404414.
