The Space Foundation was founded in 1983 as an advocate for the space industry and to provide education to the public, empowering them to help advance space-related endeavors. The exhibits relate the history of space travel in the United States and showcase advances in technology through the years.
Northrop Grumman Science Center
At the center is Science on a Sphere. Projected onto a 6-foot-diameter sphere made from carbon-reinforced plastic are full motion images of the planets, sun, and moon. Visitors can watch depictions of environmental phenomena, such as ocean currents, extreme weather, and even air travel, to see how they effect the planet as a whole.
El Polmar Space Gallery
This gallery houses several exhibits illuminating the history of space travel, namely Launch to the Moon. The exhibit traces the race between the United States and Soviet Union to be the first to land on the moon (1959–1976). Visitors examine space suits, space food, and a model of the U.S. Lunar Module that helped Americans get there first.
