The Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago (MSI) will unveil Science Storms on March 18th. Science Storms is a new permanent exhibit in the newly-named Allstate Court that reveals the science behind some of nature's most powerful phenomena--tornados, lightning, fire, tsunamis, sunlight, avalanches and atoms in motion. The MSI exhibit says you can "be blown away by a 40-foot tornado swirling before you, see bolts of lightning crack over your head, trigger an avalanche and unleash a tsunami wave."
