The Greatest, Strangest and Coolest Space accomplishments of all time! Some you might have heard of, many you probably haven't.

Here's a teaser. There is a factory in Las Vegas owned by a billionaire real estate mogul that makes inflatable space stations.  Three are in orbit today with one docked to the International Space Station.  Among other things, the two free flying modules have a 'life in a box' experiment with Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches on board.

Free and held at planetarium.
