This may be the best promotion for a science museum I have ever seen.

Wow! What an effort this must've been! The Detroit Science Center is a great place; I've been there and the staff are truly dedicated and clearly excited about what they do. Full disclosure: I worked with them

a few years back to make a planetarium show

based on my book and website. But that doesn't matter here; I would've linked to this delightful video anyway. It took them two weeks to get set up, then they filmed this in one night. Awesome. I think this is really terrific, and shows just how fun a science center can be. My congrats to my friends at DSC! And of course, if you live anywhere near there, give them a visit

. You'll clearly have a good time.
