Space Science

Space is a wonderful place of mysteries and  space science involves the study of space (asteroids , comets , planets , black holes, planets,etc ) .Some research centers like NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) study space science and launch satellites and rockets. A relatively young field, space science blossomed in the later half of the 20th century, so the Museum’s collection focuses mainly on that period, and especially on objects flown in the atmosphere or in space.
