COLUMBUS, Ga. — Columbus State University’s Coca-Cola Space Science Center (CCSSC) is opening a new exhibit experience this Saturday that promises participants a taste of space.
“A Space Shuttle Odyssey” is an interactive space flight adventure. From the 27-seat Odyssey theatre, participants will launch into space in seats that literally shake. During the 15-minute journey, ten high-definition displays from the front and above depict the Earth from orbit, the stars, flight data and more.
“A Space Shuttle Odyssey” is made possible by a $250,000 gift from WestRock.
“We are so grateful to have a partner like WestRock,” said Shawn Cruzen, executive director of CSU’s Coca-Cola Space Science Center. “Together, we are providing inspiration to the next generation of science explorers, as well as creating a richer history and cultural experience for the region and visitors.”
On Saturday, March 25, CSU’s Coca-Cola Space Science Center officially opens Odyssey to the public in true CCSSC fashion, with a celebration that includes:
— “A Space Shuttle Odyssey” shows every 20 minutes;
— RED the Robot in action;
— Super Science demonstrations;
— Air Rocket construction and launches;
— Omnisphere Theatre shows;
— Solar observing;
— Door prizes.
The celebration will last from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., but the center will be open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Admission is $5 per person, and free for children ages three and under. Hot dogs, snacks and drinks also will be available for purchase during the event.
Seating for “A Space Shuttle Odyssey” is limited, so the CCSSC crew kindly requests you book your flight online. Keep up with CCSSC and the event on Facebook at Facebook.com/CocaColaSpaceScienceCenter.Learn more »
