Our Universe is Expanding
The North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences is preparing to open its new wing, the Nature Research Center (NRC) on April 20, 2012. Both the NRC and the Museum will be open for 24 hours straight, from 5pm Friday, April 20 to 5pm Saturday, April 21. The 24-hour opening will showcase the Nature Research Center and the Museum with many special programs, hands-on activities, international food, music and much more, including Planet Earth Celebration.
The focus of the Museum has been on “what we know” whereas the Nature Research Center will concentrate on “how we know what we know,” bringing scientific research to the forefront.
