Get ready to explore the future of aerospace technology and air travel in Above and Beyond, presented by Parker Aerospace!

Above and Beyond features 5,000 square feet of unprecedented interactive demonstrations of the advances in aviation and aerospace from the first powered flights to the newest innovations. 

Within the exhibition, guests will be able to step into a simulated space elevator that takes them to the edge of the universe, design and test a supersonic jet to face off in a virtual high speed flying competition, experience a flight simulation with motion-sensing technology to get a sense of what it’s like to fly like a bird, and discover concepts for future aircraft.

Above and Beyond opens at the Science Center on Saturday, September 25 and runs through Sunday, January 2. Above and Beyond is included with general admission to the Science Center. The Science Center will celebrate the grand opening of the exhibition by offering FREE admission to all guests from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, September 25.
