Overview

Alien Worlds and Androids takes on the question that has fascinated man for centuries: “Are we alone?” This exhibit brings guests face-to-face with worlds far beyond their own, and introduces the technology that takes them there. The 5,000 square foot exhibition has nine areas highlighting studies and findings.
 
Sci-fi fans will appreciate how science fiction has inspired and influenced science, robotics and technologies.  Life-size replicas of Iron Man, C-3PO and R2D2 from Star Wars movies, and a replica T-800 bust from The Terminator franchise, produce great learning and “selfie” photo opportunities. Guests are encouraged to construct an alien, touch a meteorite, work with a robotic arm, and sit in a POD to experience the incredible journey CURIOSTY endured to land on Mars.
