StenniSphere, the visitor center at John C. Stennis Space Center, recently
opened three new and diverse exhibits just in time to entertain visitors
the traditional spring break period.

A new exhibit entitled “Caring for the Gulf Together” shows how six Stennis
resident agencies support Gulf of Mexico activities. Another exhibit
“NASA’s Technology – An Investment in America’s Future” shows the benefits
derived from human exploration and development of space. It highlights more
30 years of NASA technologies brought from outer space into our homes.
“Touching Tomorrow. Today,” is a new exhibit sponsored by NASA’s Office of
Education, highlighting the importance of sharing tomorrow’s vision with
youth and educators.

StenniSphere was recently named Mississippi’s Travel Attraction of the Year
by the Mississippi Tourism Association. More than 200,000 visitors from
the world have visited StenniSphere since it reopened in May 2000.

StenniSphere is open daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. except major holidays.
Admission is free. For more information, call 1-800-237-1821 (Option 1) in
