Space exhibit lands at Alpena library

Submitted by on May 13, 2019 – 12:32 amNo Comment

The public library in downtown Alpena is hosting an interactive space exhibit through June.

The exhibit covers four areas of space: The final frontier, electric space, exploring our solar system, and cosmic journey.

NASA@MyLibrary Program Manager Tina St. John says the exhibit will teach visitors how stars and planetary systems form and the role that gravity plays; help them understand the similarities and differences between Earth and Mars and the tools used to explore planets; and teach them about the role asteroids and comets play in our solar system.

Adults and children alike will also learn about the sun, a dynamic star, and how it varies; and explore electric and magnetic changes that take place in space, such as the aurora.

The exhibit includes a touchscreen computer kiosk that contains several games that will engage children and adults, and is free and open to the public during normal library hours.
