Hollywood meets hi-tech at the Saint Louis Science Center's new exhibition, Alien Worlds and Androids. Visitors discover what extraterrestrial life may be like through the use of advanced laboratories, telescopes, robots and probes. Nine themed areas demonstrate how new technologies are being implemented to discover if we are alone in the universe. A Mars rover simulator journeys to the Red Planet, while movie icons Iron Man and C-3PO explain the differences between androids and robots, and why the sci-fi future of the movies is coming faster than we think. Alien Worlds and Androids is open daily through Monday, September 7, at the Saint Louis Science Center (5050 Oakland Avenue; 314-289-4400 or www.slsc.org). Admission is $4 to $8..
