Raytheon Technologies Living in the Space Age will explore how innovations in space technology have transformed our lives.

The Raytheon Technologies Living in the Space Age Hall will provide insight into space technologies and infrastructure that are largely invisible to the public but have a profound impact on our daily lives. The exhibition will cover topics from the beginning of the Space Age in the mid-20th century to the present and beyond. Visitors can explore these stories through Space Age objects and the people who build, maintain, and use them. The content will include the development of rocket technology that has enabled access to space, missile development, space systems for Earth observation, communication, and navigation, and the threats to these systems.
