Located on the third floor of the J.D. Williams Library, the exhibit features a wide array of materials and topics including the 1973 Pascagoula UFO sighting, paintings by primitive artist, Howard Finster, rare astronomy books from earlier centuries, and historical items that document Mississippi connections to the space program. 

With examples from the eighteenth century to the twenty-first, the exhibition includes early efforts to track planets and stars, the politics of the space race, as well as the creative imagination of musicians, artists and writers. Science fiction publications include two 1950s paperbacks on loan from William Faulkner’s personal library at Rowan Oak. 

“Space: Exploring the Final Frontier in the Archives” is open to the public Monday through Friday, from 9am-noon and 1pm-4pm. The number of visitors to the exhibit will be limited to 25 at any one time.
