Beyond Planet Earth: The Future of Space Exploration

November 9, 2011 — August 12, 2012


Destination Mars

The Moon. Mars. An icy moon of Jupiter. A near-Earth asteroid. In the not too distant future, missions to these destinations will launch from Earth.

All would involve countless hours of planning and hard work, opportunity for scientific glory—and risk. But if the missions succeed, what adventures would unfold. So, tonight, look up. Above you: the universe.

Beyond Planet Earth: The Future of Space Exploration is organized by the American Museum of Natural History, New York in collaboration with MadaTech: The Israel National Museum of Science, Technology & Space, Haifa, Israel.
