FUN IS A MARS ROVER

Suggestion advisory: Adler Planetarium. Mons & Tues it's free. The little movies about Egyptian astronomy etc are $, but the movie you do get for free is in 3-D and is photos from the Mars Rover. At the beginning you go "flying through space" and it appears that galaxy-parts are zooming off the screen to bonk you in yr noggin--way more realistic than I was expecting. The rest is mostly goofy hands on stuff for 3rd grade field trippers, but there are moon rocks and meteors and fascinating facts about black holes to learn. That, plus souvenier penny pressing machines = totally worth the 75 cents we spent on parking.
