The Fleet has 12 exhibitions permanently on display.
On Saturday, September 10, your Girl Scout is invited to the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center's Girl Scouts Sleepover. She will have the opportunity to explore mind-boggling Illusions, the science behind how human cells are formed, the importance of water conservation and more in our eight interactive exhibit galleries. She will also get to attend two fun, educational workshops, participate in a scavenger hunt and view an IMAX movie in the Heikoff Dome Theater.
Science doesn’t just live in a lab. It surrounds you everywhere, no matter where you are. We believe the exploration of science has the power to transform and inspire you.
This year, Science Is Everywhere, our 2016 annual fundraiser, aims to encourage San Diegans to discover the science all around them through a series of science photo challenges. The challenges were conducted on social media (through the Reuben H. Fleet Science Center's Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages), inspiring San Diegans to find everything from fractals to bubbles.
Star Wars: The Force Awakens is now out on DVD Blu-Ray. NASA is celebrating with fun Star Wars-related videos and stories.

You may have heard that there is evidence of a possible new ninth planet in our solar system, but what exactly does that mean? What evidence was found?

For the first time in a decade, five planets are visible with the naked eye at the same time. Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn will be together in the pre-dawn sky starting Wednesday, January 20, 2016.
There are a ton of ways you can connect with NASA—from taking spacey selfies to helping scientists search for black holes—and all you need to get started is an Internet connection!
Not really into selfies? You’ll definitely start snapping breathtaking selfies by using the Spacecraft 3D augmented reality app! Select the target image and take your photo with the spacecraft of your choice. http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/apps/
The peak of the Geminid meteor shower occurs this weekend on the nights of December 13 and 14. The Geminids are one of the most consistent meteor showers year after year. This year there will be no bright moon to compete with so the show should be particularly good.
