Alien Worlds and Androids brings the work of scientists to life in an exhibition that presents the possibility of life existing beyond Earth through the use of robots, telescopes, space probes and high-tech laboratories. Visitors will joins scientists in their search for alien life as they explore technologies used to examine remote solar systems and Earth's extreme environments, discover alien-like creatures found on our planet and learn about scientific developments of robots and androids with artificial intelligence. You'll explore nine thematic areas that address the question that has fascinated man for centuries: Are we alone?

Visitors will investigate how close scientists are to discovering new alien worlds and alien life through exoplanets - planets that exist outside the solar system; extremophiles - creatures that thrive under some of the harshest conditions on Earth; and human microbiomes - a group of alien-like microorganisms in the human body that can be both beneficial and dangerous. You'll also discover the difference between androids and robots and take an up-close look at famous sci-fi robots from movies, such as Iron Man, T-800 from The Terminator, C3PO from Star Wars and more.

Alien Worlds and Androids is open at the Saint Louis Science Center through Sept. 7. Admission is $6 for Science Center members and $8 for non-members.
