Children's Museum of Memphis Offers "Living in Space"

Posted By on Mon, Jun 4, 2007 at 4:00 AM

After five years of construction, the second traveling exhibit built by the Children's Museum of Memphis -- "Living in Space"� -- debuts June 16th and will run through mid-December at CMOM.

The exhibit then takes to the road, appearing at other children's museums throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Inspired by the International Space Station, the single largest international aerospace project built to date, the exhibit lets children become crew-members. On board they eat, sleep, and even go potty in space. They also float to work, help maintain the shuttle, and learn what astronauts do as they orbit Earth.

For more information, go to the museum's website.
