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 to-scale NASA models, spacecraft samples, and replicas of the Phoenix Mars lander provide tangible examples of the sheer size of celestial equipment. The Biosphere 2 Hall highlight’s the massive closed ecological system’s history and future. Science Downtown exhibits works by space artist Robert McCall, a former illustrator for Life magazine and the film 2001: A Space Odyssey. Also on display will be meteorites, which guests are allowed to touch, an exhibit dedicated to the Hubble space telescope, 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 Mars.

Great job!

The interactive globe near the entrance is awesome! You can tilt it, rotate it, and look at different scenarios- tsunamis, ocean currents, earthquakes, sea level changes, etc. Very, very cool..
