Canadian Space Agency Travelling Exhibitions
Learn all about Canada's historical space achievements and the conquest of space through two travelling exhibits from the Canadian Space Agency:
The Conquest of Space in Images
From November 7, 2009 to February 7, 2010
Musée du Fjord, Quebec
The space age began with the launch of Sputnik. Since then, man has walked on the Moon, robots have stirred the soil on Mars, and probes have scanned the farthest reaches of the Universe. Russia, America, Europe, and Canada embarked on an amazing space adventure. The milestone events on this journey are eloquently presented in stunning photographs in this exhibit, adapted from an original created by France's space agency, the Centre national d'études spatiales.
Sports in Space
February 10-March 21, 2010
The CSA celebrates the spirit of the Vancouver 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games by unveiling an exclusive exhibit in West Vancouver.
In collaboration with the West Vancouver Community Center Spirit Square, the Canadian Space Agency will be taking Olympic sports-and science-to new heights with a new public exhibit from February 10-March 21, 2010.
A fun, interactive and free learning experience for families, this self-guided exhibit explores the science of space through sport. Enjoy scale models of the International Space Station, Canadarm2 and Dextre and gain a sense of what it's really like to live, work and play in space-and why exercise is a critical part of every astronaut's day. See the Olympic jersey signed by the Canadian athletes and worn by Canadian Space Agency Astronaut Julie Payette when she last flew in space. Follow the physics of golfing on the Moon. Find out if Canucks can play hockey on Mars or just how far and fast your slap shot would travel on the Red Planet.
