Sci Fi & Sci Fact: Two Worlds Collide Exhibit Opens December 15

December 15, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

NM Museum of Space History's new exhibit Sci-Fi Sci-Fact

What: Learn how Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein has helped save lives. Discover how a guy named Hugo laid the groundwork for virtual reality and wireless technology in the early 1900s. See how the realms of science fiction and science fact overlap and help create our modern world when the Sci Fi & Sci Fact exhibit opens on Friday, December 15.

Where: New Mexico Museum of Space History

Why: From earbuds to iPads, and rocket ships to credit cards, science fiction writers have imagined the future. And inventors have imagined turning those dreams into reality. Scientists, doctors, astronauts, engineers, and many others have been inspired to pursue careers, create new technology, and push the limits of knowledge by vivid tales of future times. On the other hand, authors have also taken existing technologies to the next level in their storytelling, opening the doors for tomorrow’s creators. The worlds of Sci Fi & Sci Fact await you!
