Revealing the Universe

Exhibit Code: OUT-149
Zone: Science Center
Location: Outside (OUT/000) - Near Greenhouse
Time: 10:00 am - 5:00 pm
Age Group: All Ages

Revealing the Universe will show visitors how professional astronomers view and make discoveries about the Universe. We will have scale models of space and ground based telescopes on display, as well as images that astrophysics graduate students have taken using these telescopes. An optical demonstration of how telescopes collect light from distant objects will also be on display, and visitors will be able to see themselves with an infrared camera, just like how certain telescopes view the universe in infrared light. Solar telescopes will be set up so visitors can safely look at the sun and take pictures of it with their smart phones, and kids will be able to play astro-trivia to win space themed prizes.
