On a cosmic scale, there’s practically no distance between us. We’re all flying through space on the same little blue planet, and we’re all looking up at the same sky. So even though the Adler’s doors are closed for now, you can stay connected with the museum, with science and astronomy, with our universe—and with other people—exactly where you are.
