Earlier in January, Museum of the Bible opened a new exhibition that explores ways in which the Bible helped nurture scientific thought — despite the supposed “war” between science and faith — and shaped some of history’s greatest scientific figures as they made groundbreaking discoveries. The Bible certainly provoked intense debate at times, but far from being an obstacle to scientific progress, biblical theology actually played an important role in the development of science and our understanding of the world around us.

With an impressive collection of world-class artifacts and objects related to science and faith, guests are promised a thought-provoking, insightful experience. Highlights include the Lunar Bible, a microfilm Bible that traveled to the moon on Apollo 14’s lunar module in 1971; Galileo Galilei’s handwritten observational notes; the lunar communion chalice used by “Buzz” Aldrin during the Apollo 11 mission, and more.
