Gimme Some Space

The search for life in the universe continues this week at the opening of the Cleveland Museum of Natural History's latest display, Alien Earths. The exhibit is broken up into four stations, including "Our Place in Space," about the Earth's location in a galaxy of 100 billion stars. "Star and Planet Formation" lets spectators design solar systems. "Planet Quest" pinpoints celestial bodies outside the solar system. And "the Drake Equation" is an interactive test that tells you the odds of finding intelligent life on other planets. The exhibit is on display from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays through Saturdays, noon to 5 p.m. Sundays, and 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Wednesdays, through Monday, September 1, at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History, 1 Wade Oval Drive. Admission is $5 to $9. Call 216-231-4600 or visit
