Constellations Break

Planetary Alignment

How big is Jupiter? What is the temperature on Mercury? Put your knowledge of our solar system to the test as Voyager 2 and Cassini fly past.

The Kuiper Belt

  • Mind your head to icy “space junk” that dates back to the formation of our solar system. If any of these rock-like objects fall out of orbit, they become meteors and comets.


Enter a breathtaking nebula. This is where stars are born. Look around in wonder and imagine that every single dot is a sun just like ours.

Human Achievement

Let’s talk about my tee! I went thrifting a week before attending this exhibit and I didn’t know I was going to be here. I am starting to thrift and upcycle graphic tees for fun. This is one I found at Goodwill and I got it for $1.49 and then I bleached it. This was the perfect shirt for this outing!
