Edge of Space

The Edge of Space occupies the mezzanine area in the new Richard and Lois Gunther Depths of Space exhibit gallery. It provides visitors with an experience that bridges the more familiar Earth-bound orientation toward the universe with a more cosmic perspective informed by the most sophisticated astronomical instruments ever built. The zone showcases samples of the universe that come to Earth from space or that we acquire through space exploration. Exhibits and features on the mezzanine include:

The Big Picture-Related Exhibits (observing telescopes)
Pieces of the Sky
Cloud and Spark Chambers
Our Moon
Cosmic News
Entrances to Leonard Nimoy Event Horizon theater
