Science Museum exhibition introduces 'extremes' of the universe


A new theme, Extremes of the Universe, starts today (October 28) at the SciTech Profile of the Science News Corner at the Hong Kong Science Museum.

Among the "extremes" covered are the Sun, the nearest star to the Earth; supernova explosions, which signal the end of a star; neutron stars, the densest objects in the universe; gamma ray bursts, the most energetic explosions in the universe; and the Big Bang, the earliest moment of the universe.

The development of astronomy in China and Hong Kong is also covered.

Meanwhile, the Science News Corner's Science Window features two new videos, Search for Extraterrestrials and DNA Detective, both provided by the National Geographic Channel.

The Hot Talk of the Science News Corner includes Using Diet to Cut Cholesterol, The First Test-tube Baby Celebrates Her 25th Birthday, Human Genome Completely Mapped, and Stem Cell Therapy.

The Science Museum is located at 2 Science Museum Road, Tsim Sha Tsui East, Kowloon. It is open from 1pm to 9pm from Monday to Friday, and from 10am to 9pm on Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays. It is closed on Thursdays (except public holidays). Admission is $25, with a half-price concession applicable to full-time students, people with disabilities and senior citizens aged 60 or above.

For enquiries, please call 2732 3232 or visit the Science Museum's website at http://hk.science.museum for further information.
