The "Above and Beyond" special exhibition is sponsored by Boeing. It offers an unprecedented interactive demonstration of advances in aviation and aerospace, from the first powered flights to the newest innovations on Earth and in space. The exhibition makes use of flight simulation, immersive theatre, touch-table displays and augmented reality to exhibit technology and scientific concepts behind flight. It inspires your curiosity to enjoy, explore and create through science, engineering, and technology. It takes you faster, higher and further for a once-in-a-lifetime experience!
Visitors will enter an immersive wraparound theatre and be challenged by the limits of flight. After that you will venture into five main zones comprising dozens of interactive exhibits. You can ride to the edge of space in a simulated space elevator or test your own supersonic fighter-jet design in a virtual high-speed flying competition. A flying experience with motion-sensing image capture also helps you sense what it is like to fly like a bird in a flock, while exploring the forces of flight.
