The Kenneth C. Griffin Exploring the Planets Gallery probes the science and history of our exploration of planets and moons. This exhibition tells the stories of the diversity of worlds circling our Sun and how exploring those worlds helps enhance our own understanding of Earth. Exploring the Planets draws on research from scientists in the Museum’s Center for Earth and Planetary Studies, who are actively involved in current planetary missions.
