Museum of Discovery & Science in Fort Lauderdale, Florida Out-of-This-World Collection of Space
Artifacts to Accompany New IMAX® Film
Space Station 3D
Opening February 14, 2004
at the Museum of Discovery and Science

Fort Lauderdale, January 27, 2004 –
The Museum of Discovery and Science received the Out-of-This-World Collection on loan from Richard Newman, the owner of HighTechScience.org. The collection consists of unique space memorabilia ranging from shuttle and satellite models to space suits and instrumentation from the American and Russian space programs. This special exhibit is from Mr. Newman’s extensive collection of space artifacts. The Out-of-This-World Collection will be on display at the Museum through August to support the new IMAX® film Space Station 3D.
 
IT’S WRITTEN IN THE STARS
Visitors will have the opportunity to see these original pieces of international space history as they exit the Blockbuster® IMAX® Theater on the second floor of the Museum. The exhibit will display Russian and American space suits, space gloves, an original launch key from the Soyuz shuttle, a main control panel from the Toru Docking System, an authentic space hammer, and flight helmets from various countries. Models originally made for the Russian Space Agency will also be on display along with an actual cockpit window from the Buran Space Shuttle. All artifacts are documented and will be accompanied by detailed descriptions of their origin and purpose.
 
ABOUT THE COLLECTOR, RICK NEWMAN
Richard Newman, owner of HighTechScience.org, has been involved with and intrigued by science and space since he was a young boy scout. Over the years Newman has formed relationships with many astronauts, cosmonauts and numerous space agencies from around the world. This has resulted in his extensive Out-of-This-World Collection which he generously shares with science museums, science centers, schools and symposiums around the world.  For more information about Richard Newman and his space artifacts, visit his website at www.HighTechScience.org.
 
ABOUT SPACE STATION 3D
Narrated by multi-Academy Award® nominee Tom Cruise, SPACE STATION 3D transports audiences 220 miles above Earth to experience life in space. As audiences blast off, they are joined by the astronauts and cosmonauts who directed and filmed their in-orbit assembly of the International Space Station. “This is the first time that audiences will have the all encompassing view that only astronauts and cosmonauts are privileged to experience. The camera actually puts you right there, with them, moving around and floating in space,” said SPACE STATION 3D producer Toni Myers. “The IMAX 3D footage captures the excitement and magnitude of this amazing project being built in outer space in a way that no other medium can.”
