Mad Science - SPACE!
Blast off into outer space in our April Mad Science programs!
Explore our solar system or take off for deep space, or maybe just stay at home but get a good look at the night sky and see what's visible from Earth. You can look at constellations in your own backyard even if you don't have a telescope! There's plenty to do to explore outer space without leaving our home planet behind. Look at the stars, learn about the planets and dwarf planets in our solar system, find out about the amazing robots and satellites we're using to explore places we can't go yet.
