What is an Exoplanet?
The stars we see in the sky probably have their own planets. Those planets in other solar systems are called exoplanets.

What is the “Discover Exoplanets” exhibit?

It is an interactive, hands-on exhibit of NASA space science that focuses on the search for other Earth-like planets in the universe. Seven interactive kiosks highlight the tools, techniques and science used to explore space. The exhibit will be right here in Jefferson County from August through October 18, 2019. For this brief time, we won’t have to travel hours off the peninsula to explore the newest NASA science. Experience hands-on science similar to the Pacific Science Center in Seattle.

Don’t miss it!
