    Beyond is a collection of never-seen-before images of the solar system from 40 years of robotic space missions. Robots from NASA and European Space Agency missions captured the breath-taking images of the inner solar system, planets and their moons. Created by artist and award-winning filmmaker Michael Benson and organized for travel by the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition (SITES), Beyond also highlights the similarities between the geological formations and atmospheric disturbances on Earth and the other planets, from the erupting volcanoes in Sicily and the lava eruptions on Jupiter's moon Io, to the deep craters on the moon and the pocketed terrain of Neptune's moon Triton, to the stormy clouds of Greenland and the dust storms on Mars. This exhibit is on display until May 24, 2009. Cost is free with price of admission.
