Sounds super fun!
A flashy new exhibition at the National Air and Space Museum not only replicates an elevator to space or a flight to Mars, it may also show how future museum shows may look.
“We’ve never had as tech heavy an exhibition here as this one is,” says curator Roger Launius of what he calls the “strikingly different” new “Above and Beyond: The Ultimate Interactive Flight Exhibition” that just opened a five-month run in Washington, D.C. “Obviously we do interactives, and some of them are electronic and some of them are mechanical,” Launius says of the other galleries and displays in the popular Air and Space Museum on the National Mall. “But this is the one that has the most electronics we’ve ever had. In fact almost everything in the exhibition has a touch screen, or a video screen or something to do.”
