Astronomers have expanded the search for extraterrestrial intelligence into a new realm with detectors tuned to infrared and optical light. A new instrument called NIROSETI, designed to scan the sky for pulses of infrared light, has begun to scour the sky for messages from other worlds. And new innovative SETI instrument, PANOSETI, is currently being designed to scan the entire sky continuously for unusual signals. Join Dr. Shelley Wright, Assistant Professor of Physics at UCSD, as she explains these new infrared and optical SETI programs and what she hopes it might find.

"The Fleet Science Center seeks to inspire lifelong learning by furthering the public understanding and enjoyment of science and technology." 

- Our Mission Statement


The Fleet Science Center features more than 100 interactive science exhibits, as well as major traveling exhibitions. Visitors can touch a tornado, create colored shadows, examine the vibration of guitar strings and get their hands on a variety of intriguing scientific phenomena. 


The Fleet Science Center is also home to the world's first (and San Diego’s only) IMAX Dome Theater, presenting the biggest films on the planet. Its unique configuration wraps the audience in images and provides the illusion of being suspended in space. The Eugene Heikoff and Marilyn Jacobs Heikoff Dome Theater takes audiences from outer space to under water and every place in between, and films are generally suitable for all ages. San Diego's only Giant Dome Theater also plays host to planetarium shows, including the monthly Sky Tonight show, which is led by an astronomer and followed by outdoor telescope viewing, courtesy of the San Diego Astronomy Association.


The Fleet Science Center is open 365 days a year, starting at 10 a.m. 

We are located in beautiful Balboa Park, home to many of the city's museums, as well as beautiful gardens, intriguing architecture and picturesque fountains. Since our opening in 1973, the Fleet has been the best-attended museum in Balboa Park and a top attraction in San Diego. For more information, visit our website at www. or call (619) 238-1233.


The Fleet Science Center offers:

  • More than 100 interactive exhibits
  • The Tinkering Studio, where you can experiment, invent and create
  • Kid City, an exhibition just for kids ages five and under
  • Plus, Craveology Cafe and the North Star Science Store
