Science Central begins building 'Sphere' exhibit

In true Science Central fashion, Fort Wayne officials donned rubber chemistry gloves and protective eyewear to celebrate the groundbreaking of a new permanent exhibit.

Officials including Mayor Tom Henry and Science Central Executive Director Martin Fisher filled mugs of liquid nitrogen and threw it on a raised concrete platform in the space that will house the exhibit.

Science on a Sphere will be the first major exhibition added to the center since its opening in 1995, and will be located in a previously unused part of the building.

Demolition, construction and installation will take about two months, with an expected opening date in late summer. The project is possible thanks to a fundraising campaign totaling more than $1.5 million.
