Measured Time – Placed within a research intensive area of the TMC, this station uses the concept of measuring time as scientific methodology. Moving the length of the station, passengers see time-lapse sequences of natural processes small and large: seeds grow into trees; cells multiply and divide, continents shift and collide; stars coalesce, burn bright and explode.
