STENNIS SPACE CENTER, Miss. -- StenniSphere, the museum and visitor center at NASA's John C. Stennis Space Center in South Mississippi, is closing Feb. 15. The closure of the facility within the gates of SSC comes as the Infinity science center project moves forward. Various exhibits from StenniSphere are being moved into Infinity to prepare for an opening this spring. Infinity is outside SSC, just south of Interstate 10. StenniSphere opened to the public in May 2000 and has hosted tens of thousands of visitors each year. The facility housed 14,000 square feet of interactive and informational exhibits highlighting NASA’s space missions and the work of other key resident agencies at Stennis. (Source: NASA, 01/30/12)
