We're 111 years into the history of powered flight, and in that time we've landed on the moon, established a long-term space station and have sent a man-made craft out past the boundaries of our galaxy. For 100 of those years, Boeing has been at work innovating and developing new technologies related to the aerospace industry. The company's achievements are celebrated in the new exhibition Above and Beyond, currently on display at the Saint Louis Science Center (5050 Oakland Avenue; 314-289-4400 or www.slsc.org). This interactive journey into the science of flight includes a space elevator simulator that carries you to the edge of space, as well as a simulation that uses motion-sensing image capture, allowing you to experience the sensations of being part of a flock of birds in flight. Above and Beyond is open daily, and tickets are $8 to $10.
