HOUSTON, March 2, 2015 – A fun, interactive journey awaits with meteorite hunters, a Pi Day celebration and the multimedia Ripley’s collection at Space Center Houston’s Cosmic Spring Break, sponsored by the city of Webster, March 14-22.


The nonprofit Space Center Houston brings science to life with a film premiere about space exploration, the Ripley’s curator on the search for the next oddity in the legendary collection and a Mars Food Face-Off with an award-winning celebrity chef.


“This year’s Cosmic Spring Break takes science-based activities to new heights,” said the nonprofit center’s President and CEO Richard E.
