Due to popular demand Questacon – The National Science and Technology Centre’s current blockbuster exhibition, Above and Beyond, has been extended until Sunday 8 October 2017.
Above and Beyond is an international aviation and aerospace exhibition presented by Boeing and developed in collaboration with NASA and the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum.
Questacon Senior Manager Centre, Retail and Tourism, Tristian Hoffmeister said Above and Beyond, which was originally scheduled to close on 23 July, has been one of the most popular travelling exhibitions Questacon has hosted to date.
Already enjoyed by more than three million people at venues in North America, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia, Above and Beyond has been seen by an additional 160,000 visitors since opening at Questacon in March this year.
Explored through five key themes that define flight and space travel—Up, Faster, Higher, Further, and Smarter—Above and Beyond is a hands-on journey that engages visitors of all ages and interests with the science and innovations behind flight.
Using cutting edge technology, Above and Beyond gives visitors to Questacon the chance to design and test-fly their own supersonic jet, spread their wings and experience flight as a bird or a futuristic wing-flapping aircraft, and take an elevator ride to the edge of space.
Above and Beyond will be open at Questacon until Sunday 8 October 2017.
