Good or bad, the Golden State has been the locus of the nation’s aerospace industry, including the research, development, and manufacturing behind space exploration, intelligence gathering and defense. Moon landings, satellites, telecommunications, and carpet bombing, it’s the boon that went boom, employing thousands, putting us on the moon and on cell phones, and charting the galaxy by way of innovations in astronomy. The Fullerton Museum’s solipsistically-titled exhibit, 'California: The Center of the Universe' argues its case convincingly with a display of the physical record, including telescope and rocket models, large-scale images from the Space Telescope Institute, artifacts from Mt. Wilson and Caltech, videos and photo montages documenting the role of the state and our region in “understanding the universe” and, we hope, understanding ourselves, stardust and golden.
