The St. Louis Science Center is bringing Mars to Missouri.  It was announced this week that the center has won a grant for more than 800-thousand dollars from NASA to build a Mars exploration exhibit.  Entitled  “Bridging Earth and Mars: Engineering Robots to Explore the Red Planet,” the exhibit is set to open in the summer of 2015.  

The Science Center is one of ten facilities nationwide that will share more than seven-million dollars from NASA’s science and technology grant program.
