Space Foundation

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.

Size

The exhibition portion of the foundation occupies two separate centers in one location: the Northrop Grumman Science Center and the El Polmar Space Gallery.

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.

Evening social mixer was great. Food, snacks and in person science experiments. Was great to experience the exhibits without children present.
