In a US - Russian cooperative agreement, this exhibit shows some of the achievements of the Russian space program.   A variety of lighting fixtures and accessories are used to create a high-contrast environment, with objects featured dramatically and without glare within a black environment.  Lights are focused to simulate the angular emanation from the sun. 

"We had two basic requirements: lights with long-term durability and a selection of accessories and control devices that enabled us to manipulate the light and achieve the effect we wanted."  -- Randy Burkett, Randy Burkett Lighting Design
