HOUSTON, March 7, 2018 – Space Center Houston announces
its new summer exhibit Above and Beyond, set

“Earn your wings and discover the innovations that
bring flight to life,” said the center’s President and CEO
William T. Harris. “Become a part of the future of flight

Above and Beyond, presented by Boeing and made
possible locally by Coca-Cola, explores the advances in
aviation and aerospace and the technologies that result
when flight and innovation unite.
Inside Above and Beyond, guests will be welcomed
by a wraparound theater that highlights the epic quest to
challenge the limits of flight. Stories from past and present
aerospace pioneers set the stage for the exhibition’s
hands-on, interactive experiences.
A space elevator simulation will take guests to the edge
of the universe. They can design and test a supersonic
fighter jet to face off in a virtual high-speed flying competition.
A flying simulation with motion-sensing technology
gives a sense of what it’s like to fly like a bird, all while
exploring the forces of flight.
“Sparking an interest in the wonder of aerospace at an
early age is a priority for Boeing,” said Greg Hyslop, Boeing
chief technology officer. “Above and Beyond provides
future engineers, pilots or astronauts with an interactive
glimpse into how they can achieve their dreams and inspire
them to pursue careers in science and technology.”
Above and Beyond is produced by Evergreen Exhibitions
in association with Boeing, in collaboration with
NASA and the Smithsonian’s National Air and Space Museum.
Tickets are available online at spacecenter.org or at the
