GOLDEN VALLEY, Minn. - Earth day is right around the corner, and it's a good time to think about the earth and how we take care of it for future generations.

In honor of the green event, the Science Museum of Minnesota is opening a new exhibit called "Future Earth".

On Saturday, April 21, the exhibit will have a NASA Climate Day Table from 1:00 p.m. 4:00 p.m., where people can learn more about NASA's great online resources and do a science experiment to learn more about carbon dioxide.

Arctic explorer Will Steger, Author Shawn Otto, who won the MN book award for "Fool Me Twice" and Maggie-Koerth Baker, science editor for boingboing.net will all be speaking at the museum during that time as well.

Liz Heinecke, the kitchen pantry scientist, visited KARE 11 Sunrise, with a special guest, to conduct an experiment about carbon dioxide emissions and ocean acidification.
