OMSI presents Space: A Journey to Our Future
January 30-May 31, 2010. Produced by Evergreen Exhibitions and presented in collaboration with NASA, this dynamic, multimedia exhibit looks back into the history of aeronautics and examines the many unknown questions of existence posed by future space exploration.
In December 1972, the Apollo 17 took what became one of the most widely publicized and famous images of the twentieth century. The iconic view of Earth as a "Blue Marble" floating in space revolutionized public perception of our fragile planet during the rising environmental consciousness of the early 1970s, highlighting a sense of vulnerability and shared responsibility.
Nearly four decades later, our planet is still a very small and fragile part of a vast universe. We share its destiny, and its limitless possibilities.
