Exhibit out of this world

Okanagan Science Centre hosts final day of Living in Space exhibit Saturday

Time is running out if you want to head into space.

Saturday is the final day for the Living in Space exhibit at the Okanagan Science Centre.

“The exhibit has been a huge success,” said Sandi Dixon, executive director.

“We have had more than 8,000 people visit the exhibit since it opened at the end of January.”

The centre is the only location west of Winnipeg, Man. to host the exhibit on loan from the Canadian Space Agency.

“We even had one of Canada’s newest astronauts, Jeremy Hansen, visit via Skype with children from Cherryville Elementary,” said Dixon.

To celebrate the final day of the exhibit, as well as Mother’s Day, the centre is hosting a special event.

On Saturday, mothers and grandmothers can visit the centre for free (with at least one paying child, one free female adult per child).

“Join us for cake, all of the makings for you to create a unique Mother’s Day gift and planetarium shows,” said Dixon.
