“The interactives are the main strength of this exhibit,” says Peter Rudetsky, a content developer who wrote the exhibit’s 7,000 words. “I hope adults spend time doing them too. And we put the text in a format that wasn’t arduous, so this isn’t like an article. It’s like a big picture book.”
Lockheed Martin, ATK, and General Motors, all sponsors of the exhibit, agreed to forgo corporate displays to preserve the educational spirit of the show. This provided more room to portray the environment astronauts and robots have explored, and those that future ones will. Maybe one of those astronauts is a toddler who left little fingerprints around the exhibit today, and took home dreams of tomorrow.
