Veronica: Hi, I am Veronica with WatchMojo.com and today we are moving between past and present, real and imaginary at the eSpace Exhibit. Genevieve Lafrance: The exhibition is separate in two, so you've got the real on one side that's going to be more linked to the exploration than what these space agency is doing. On the other side, it would be more to kind of a museum side how this bounces back to the reality. The science part has been handled by the Canadian space agency, so we do have -- that has been worn by -- back in 1995 for one of his mission, but this quest for us the trigger, the idea was really to see, how the space -- team of space and exploration did have an impact on the creation and on the creativity, so you're going to have toys, cartoons. So the idea would be how did we integrated the idea of space within our home daily lives. Veronica: What kind of factors an exhibit like this have on the future of kids who are discovering it? Genevieve Lafrance: I was touring the exhibit with one of the astronomer David St. Jacques earlier. What he was telling is that in fact he came -- with the imagination, the imaginary portion of it and he is finishing it within the real. As being an astronaut, he would have loved to see an exhibit like that, you know when he was kid. Veronica: Can you describe and tell us more about some of the artifacts we'll find here at the exhibit? Genevieve Lafrance: You can see the cartoons that has been done over a century, this is kind of very intriguing to look at. In the same time, we do have shows in 3D that you have to wear those funny glasses. We do have a magnificent legal piece of 5,000 pieces of the Millennium Falcon. Veronica: Thank you very much. Genevieve Lafrance: You're welcome, it's my pleasure.
