Science Downtown devotes its earthbound facility to the study of otherworldly matters, aiming to become a permanent exhibit hall and educational hotspot for science-related subjects. Developed by the University of Arizona’s College of Science, Science Downtown’s current exhibit, Mars and Beyond, launches visitors into a high-tech exploration of the red planet that includes stunning images. Multiple theaters and interactive attractions pour stunning views of the solar system into star-struck eyes, and scaled-to-size NASA models, spacecraft samples, and replicas of the Phoenix Mars lander provide tangible examples of the sheer size of celestial equipment. Also on display will be meteorites, a T-Rex skull, and a scaled model of the University of Arizona’s own HiRISE high-resolution orbiting camera, used by paparazzi astronauts to chronicle the budding romance between the earth and moon.
