Best Space-Age relics - 2008
Hall of Science in Queens
The New York Hall of Science in Queens offers plenty of worthy exhibits: microbes, molecules, mathematics, etc. But the main attractions may be on the lawn outside, in Rocket Park, where linger two fantastic-looking remnants of the U.S. space program, an original Atlas booster and an original Titan II booster, along with replica capsules that the kids?and starstruck adults?can climb inside. We?re content to play, but should you want to learn something, there?s information on the history of rocket development.
