Alien Worlds and Androids Exhibit at The Leonardo
FINAL WEEKS OF THIS EXHIBIT! CLOSING DAY IS MAY 7, 2017
At the intersection of science, technology and art, is the final frontier. And there is nowhere better to explore that frontier than at The Leonardo. That’s why we’re excited to announce our next traveling exhibit, Alien Worlds and Androids, with content provided by JPL and NASA. It may be an out of this world experience, but you will leave feeling like you took a fantastic journey through space and time. Alien Worlds and Androids brings guests face-to-face with worlds far beyond their own, and introduces the technology that takes them there. This brand new exhibit opens to the public on Saturday January 28, 2017. It will only be at The Leonardo for a limited time.
ABOUT THE EXHIBIT
The question “are we alone in the universe” has fascinated mankind for centuries. From books to movies and everything in between, we’ve asked, studied and dissected this idea from every angle. With the advent of manned spaceflight in the mid-20th century, finding the answer to that question has become a tantalizing reality.
Inside this 5,000 square foot exhibit are nine themed environments that will immerse museum-goers in a wide variety of discoveries and theories on space travel and the possibility of life beyond the planet earth. There are hands on experiments, real live robots and so much more. You can even ride along with the Mars Rover as it scours the surface of our nearest planetary neighbor. It’s an experience that anyone who has dreamed of flying through the frontiers of space won’t want to miss.
POP CULTURE PHENOMENONS
As with any exhibit about space and technology, there are life-size models of some of the inspirations behind the kinds of robots and space crafts we use today. Inside the exhibit you’ll find a life-size C-3PO and R2-D2 from STAR WARS, an exact replica of Tony Stark’s IRON MAN suit, robots from the TERMINATOR movies and more! Since fiction can inform real life, it’s no wonder that so many of our inspirations come from those things that excite our imagination.
A GALAXY OF POSSIBILITIES
From deep-sea exploration to robotics and cyborgs, there is plenty to engage the imagination and ignite curiosity. With hands-on exhibits designed to bring this science to spectacular life, visitors will come away with a desire to look to the stars and see what’s out there.
