Look! Up in the sky! It's MIT, offering demonstrations and hands-on activities relating to man-made things that fly, float, and orbit. See the TALARIS Hopper, a robotic planetary explorer designed to traverse the moon's terrain. You can also tour a wind tunnel, make water bottle rockets, watch radio-controlled aircraft swoop and soar, and much more.
