The planet Saturn has a density lower than water. So, if placed in water it would float.
MOSI's permanent exhibit, “Disasterville” is a 10,000-square-foot dramatic and engaging public exhibition where guests are able to walk through interactive towns and experience the impact of a variety of simulated natural disasters. Disasterville covers nine types of disasters: floods, hail storms, hurricanes, lightning, tornadoes, wildfires, volcanoes, earthquakes and tsunamis. Learn how to take action and minimize the effects of nature’s fury in your life.
Experience thrilling simulated presentations that detail the use of appropriate materials and necessary precautions taken during an impending natural disaster. Brace yourself! You’re in for an unforgettable experience!
Step into the role of a weather reporter, engineer or even producer in Bay News 9 WeatherQuest—an interactive news-assignment exhibit allowing guests the opportunity to oversee an entire weather broadcast from a real-life news desk and meteorologist green screen.
Located with the Disasterville exhibition area, WeatherQuest is a “team-oriented” mission-based program meant to introduce guests to the extreme detail and research put into weather reporting and geological forecasting. Guests can step into the roles of weather reporter, anchor, emergency manager, producer, or scientist within a newsroom designed as mock Bay News 9 studio. In addition, WeatherQuest features a glass front so other MOSI guests can observe the newsroom in action!
Located in the main building on the 2nd floor in Disasterville, look for the “Disaster Communications Bus.”
Stop by for a visit and if a volunteer is in the “Shack” stop by and learn a little about amateur radio or if you are a “Ham” stop by and say hi.
The Museum of Science and Industry’s Amateur Radio Station / Club – KM0SI, came to life on July 28, 1990. Today we refer to it as MOSI-ARC.
The MOSI-ARC relies on licensed amateur radio operators as volunteers who support the “shack” and club. They volunteer their time to open and operate the “shack” here at MOSI and provide information to visitors.
MOSI-ARC operates locally on 443.000 (+) with a PL of 146.2. They also monitor the NI4CE system (the Riverview Repeater at 442.550 (+) PL 100.0) as well as our Echolink Node at 468359. You may also find them on APRS.
If you are a licensed Amateur Radio Operator and would like to volunteer your time, giving back to your community, please contact MOSI-ARC at firstname.lastname@example.org .
