If our black spot piranhas could talk, they would probably tell you not to be scared of them!

Piranhas have a reputation of being deadly. And while it’s true they could devour a big animal, they would only do so when extremely hungry or overstimulated by blood. 🐟 Most of the time, piranhas ignore people and wading animals.

There’s a lot to learn about the animals and fish who live on our planet. Meet them on your next visit to LSC – the piranhas are in the Wild About Animals exhibition!

This morning, Amazon and Blue Origin founder Jeff Bezos – and a winner of Liberty Science Center’s Genius Award – rocketed 60 miles from Texas to the edge of space!

This event marks another milestone in the commercial advancement of human spaceflight. Less than two weeks ago, Virgin Galactic owner Richard Branson (another Genius Award winner!) became the first person to soar into space via his own rocket ship.

Bezos’ trip paid tribute to America’s legacy of human space flight. The space vehicle was named “New Shepard” after Alan Shepard, the first American in space, and occurred on the 52nd anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing.

This was the 15th flight for New Shepard. Jeff Bezos and his brother, Mark Bezos, were two of the crew members.

This trip to space was also historic in that the crew included the youngest person to go to space, 18-year-old Oliver Daemen from the Netherlands, and the oldest person, 82-year-old Mary Wallace Funk. Funk is a pilot who, in 1961, went through NASA’s Women in Space program (sometimes called “The Mercury 13”), which put a group of 13 women through the same intense training as the Mercury astronauts. This was her first flight to space.

Way before the T. rex, the Allosaurus was one of the most common and fearsome predators! It had dozens of four-inch teeth, serrated like steak knives, that slashed through meat.

The Allosaurus is one of the fossils you can find in DINO DIG ADVENTURE – it opens July 21!

The appeal to all ages really makes Liberty Science Center unique and a must visit for all! Highly recommend. Looking forward to my next visit and their exciting new exhibits. (LSC After Dark for 21+ is a MUST!)
I cannot wait to visit again!! I love that the exhibits are entertaining and educational for kids, but my favorite part of LSC are the after dark events!! By far, the most unique and fun experience I’ve had in a long time! Look forward to attending more in the future!
The liberty science center is such a fun place for kids and adults!!!! I am always so excited to hear about the fun and new exhibits! Also I love that they have virtual events too!!!
