New Space Explorer Gallery Opens At Virginia Air & Space Center

HAMPTON—The new Space Explorer Gallery at the Virginia Air & Space Science Center offers a unique opportunity to learn about gravity, explore the life cycle of a star, view some of the spacecraft that were sent to Mars, and view both a Martian meteorite and a three-billion-year-old Moon rock brought back by the crew of the Apollo 17 mission in 1972.

The interactive exhibits also provide visitors with an opportunity to learn about Earth and its place in the universe, study orbital patterns, learn about stars, and “create” a black hole.

Celebrating 25 years of innovative excellence as the official visitor center for NASA Langley Research Center, the Virginia Air & Space Science Center is open Wednesday–Saturday, 10am–5pm, and Sunday from 12–5pm.
