Aquarium of the Pacific wins NASA grant for 'Instrumented Earth' exhibit

The Aquarium of the Pacific has won a large grant from NASA to coordinate new exhibits called “Our Instrumented Earth” at its facility and at two other aquariums in Oregon and Maryland, officials announced this week.

A $331,000 NASA grant will fund creation of the exhibits next year at the Long Beach Aquarium of the Pacific, the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry and the Goddard Visitor Center near Washington, D.C., aquarium officials said.

Scientists at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory near Pasadena and the University of California, Irvine, will also help build the technologically advanced exhibits.
