The Kokomo-Howard County Public Library is hosting the second international tour of Discover Space: A Cosmic Journey, from January 14 through March 29. The Kokomo Tribune reports that KHCPL is one of nine libraries in the nation to be selected to facilitate the event.
The exhibit is free to the public and divided into four sections: SPACE – The Final Frontier; Electric Space; Exploring Our Solar System; and Cosmic Journey.
The Discover Space exhibit will include a build-a-solar-system game as well as an interactive meteorite collection, featuring one that is 4.5 billion years old. On Jan. 24, an astronaut will Skype from space during the program.
“We just think people will really love this, because space is intriguing,” Lisa Fipps, KHCPL director of marketing and community engagement told the Kokomo Tribune. “The concept of it, the size of the galaxy, the overwhelming idea of how it all works, just trying to take that huge concept and boil it down into hands-on activity, we’re really excited to have it.”
