The NASA Experience is a hands-on exhibition that brings to life the thrilling, challenging and inspiring process of scientific discovery by showcasing the real stories and people at NASA’s Ames Research Center. Visitors step into the role of a NASA scientist through embarking on hands-on challenges, exploring more than 30+ objects that showcase Ames’ past and future, and getting to know real NASA scientists. In Studio 2, Going the Distance explores how humans are expanding our boundaries by moving farther into the Universe than ever before. With inspiration and content provided by NASA’s Ames Research Center, Caltech’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Planet, and SpaceX, the exhibit traces our journey through the cosmos, and where we are headed.
Chabot's Observation Deck invites visitors to observe the world around them in new ways. Opened in April 2018, the 3200 sq. ft. exhibition area features 12 interactive stations. The Observatory Deck expansion was made possible through Measure WW funds. Exhibits were designed and built by the Exploratorium. Chabot’s mission is to inspire and educate learners of all ages about the Universe and Planet Earth.
