SciPort 07: the art of science, the allure of architecture, the engagement in hands-on exploration
Take your camera, your sketchbook and your friends when you visit this downtown cosmos.
Imagine a gleaming Foucault Pendulum measuring the rotation of Planet Earth on the banks of the Red.
The Space Dome Interactive Planetarium: it's both physical and digital.
The rooftop observatory/terrace: you are King Kong.
The 16-million pixel laser planetarium projection system: O M G.
Special events are on SciPort's Calendar. A biggie: the Space Odyssey Family Camp-In, the first all-night camp-in to be held in the new Space Center at Sci-Port Discovery Center: 6 p.m. Fri, Jan 26, to 7 a.m. Sat, Jan 27, says Eric Gipson.
