Above and Beyond – The Ultimate Flight Exhibition at New York Hall of Science

Event description:

NYSCI's summer exhibition uses flight simulation, augmented reality, touch-tables, design and skill challenges, virtual reality and more to immerse visitors in the wonders of flight, space travel and aerospace innovation, design and technology. Through more than 15 exhibit components, visitors to Above and Beyond will explore innovations in aviation and aerospace, from the first powered flights to the newest innovations on Earth and in space.

As guests enter Above and Beyond, they will be welcomed with an immersive, wraparound theater that highlights the epic quest to challenge the limits of flight. Continuing through the exhibition, they will learn more about flight through the hands-on interactives. They can step into a simulated space elevator that takes them to the edge of the universe, design and test a supersonic fighter jet to face off in a virtual high-speed flying competition, experience what it's like to fly like a bird through a flying simulation with motion-sensing technology, and more.

Above and Beyond is produced by Evergreen Exhibitions in association with Boeing and in collaboration with NASA and the Smithsonian's National Air and Space Museum.
