SciPort 07: the art of science, the allure of architecture, the engagement in hands-on exploration

SciPort: funnel to the new wing
Originally uploaded by trudeau.
After the flurry of holiday activity surrounding the opening of the Space wing at SciPort, the one that juts toward the river, we thought you'd like to be reminded of its artfulness.

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.
