WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. -- NASA’S Exploration Experience is an interactive traveling exhibit that takes visitors on a visual journey through the past, present and future of exploration. The exhibit uses 3D imagery and the latest video technology to immerse visitors into the presentation. This exhibit will be on display at the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pa., August 20-29th.

"We hope the experience helps people better understand the importance of exploration and the impact NASA technology has on their daily lives. “ said outreach coordinator Kirk Pierce from NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center in Huntsville, Ala.

The Exploration Experience exhibit will be on display outside the Peter J. McGovern Little League Museum and will be open 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. August 20-28th and 11:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. on August 29th. Additional NASA exhibits will be on display inside the Peter J. McGovern Little League Museum August 14-19th from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and on August 20th-29 from 9:00 a.m. to 7: p.m.

NASA staffers will be on hand to answer questions and discuss some of the thousands of technologies used on Earth as a result of years of space-based research and development by the agency and its partners. Exhibit visitors can learn how our quality of life improves as America’s space exploration activities refine existing technologies and develop new breakthroughs in areas such as power generation, computer technology, communications, networking and robotics.

Touring the NASA Exploration Experience exhibit takes approximately 12 minutes. The exhibit is wheelchair-accessible. Exhibit visitors also can see what they would look like on the Moon by having their photo taken in a space suit against a lunar landscape.
