You can be a hero of space. Right now, there is someone working to explore space who is just like you. More than just astronauts, they are engineers, scientists, businesspeople, and others, who are making space exploration possible. How did they get involved in space? Can I be like them? Heroes of Space is an exhibit that will answer these questions and let you try out a little bit of what it takes to work in space. Opening Sept. 8, 2017, Heroes of Space is a small exhibit highlighting the stories of eight space professionals and how they became a part of the space industry. A hands-on interactive exhibit, Heroes of Space invites visitors to learn how they can be a part of working in space.
