From Science Fiction to Science Fact, this exhibit at the Jewish Museum of Maryland Explores the Wonders of Space.
As the reality of life on Earth, continues to get more complicated, the Jewish Museum of Maryland is welcoming visitors into their building (and virtually) to explore the wonder of space. From ancient astronomers to today’s space scientists and astronauts, Jewish people have been interested in “looking up.” Outer space has also inspired Jewish artists, writers, comedians, and thinkers, both religious and secular, to boldly imagine realms beyond our Earth.
Visitors will find items as rare as 18th and 19th century rabbinic tomes on astronomy in Hebrew, German and Yiddish, and items as idiosyncratic as science fiction memorabilia. The exhibit features mementos from other Jewish space travelers and a detailed timeline of Jewish accomplishments in astronomy and spaceflight.
