Our Solar System

Our Solar System uses infographics to compare and contrast like features (e.g. temperature, composition, etc.) between planets. Each planet is color coded and brought to life through huge backdrop of NASA’s most up-to-date photos of the planet, scale models and digital touch pads. Several of the planets include a “Touch the Solar System” component where visitors can physically touch actual pieces broken off from those bodies. Virtual scientists answer questions about these precious meteorites at the push of a button. Visitors are also invited to drive a remote planetary rover, fly over the surface of Mars and explore our Arrivals and Departures screens documenting current missions to bodies throughout the solar system.
