The Cade Museum Is Out of this World With Moon to Mars Exhibit
Museum to receive real-time data from the International Space Station
Gainesville, FL, Jul 2, 2020 – The Cade Museum’s new exhibit and theme, Moon to Mars, will launch July 3rd. Micro exhibits throughout the building will help to educate guests on space and space travel.
Space-themed activities will also be found in the Fab Lab and the Creativity Lab. These activities will encourage guests to learn more about what it takes to colonize the moon and travel to Mars, as well as the solutions inventors are discovering to make this a reality.
One of the most exciting parts of the space theme will be the connection between the Cade Museum and the International Space Station.
ISS Above, an electronic device that brings the space station to you, will show guests when the station is heading over Gainesville as well as provide interesting information about that space station. The connection will also allow for story time from space, where guests can get a story time experience with team members from the space station.
Currently, members on the space station include: Antatoly Ivanishin, Ivan Vagner, Chris Cassidy, Bob Behnken and Doug Hurley. To learn more about the astronauts aboard the space station click the link below:
