It's a Bug! It's a Germ! It's Yucky and Gross! Who Will Save the Planet From the Invasion of the Microbes?

It's Microbe Man Flying 90 Feet to the Rescue!

Jan 19, 1998, 00:00 ET from Liberty Science Center

                It's So Much Fun... It's Positively Infectious
     Emerging from the shadows high up in the rooftop of Liberty Science
 Center, Microbe Man, the world's newest grime-fighting super hero, will
 actually fly down 90 feet, zip around the four-story atrium, and finally land
 on the Invention Floor to formally open a new exhibit on his favorite topic:
 Microbes: Invisible Invaders... Amazing Allies, an interactive exhibit that
 takes the visitor directly into the heart of one of today's most compelling
 topics: how microbes continue to plague mankind and how scientists track them
 and find cures.
     Join us as Microbe Man demonstrates his amazing powers of flight and his
 super germ-fighting ability:
     *  THRILL TO: Microbe Man's powers of germ-fighting flight that are so
        great he can also fly up the atrium and from side to side to search out
        the bad viruses and bacteria.
     * MARVEL AT: Microbe Man escorting our guests and children through the
       exhibit, demonstrating the virtual reality games, video games, and 3-D
       holograms of his various foes.
     * CHEER FOR: our superhero as he shows us all about the good germs -- the
       ones that make bread rise, turn milk to cheese and yogurt, etc. -- and
       help us live more healthy lives.
     Microbes... Invisible Invaders... Amazing Allies is a new 5,000-square-
 foot interactive exhibit sponsored by Pfizer Inc, and created by BBH Exhibits
 in collaboration with the National Institutes of Health (NIH).  The exhibit
 will open to the public on Saturday, January 24 and remain at Liberty Science
 Center until May 3, 1998 and then begin a five-year tour through the United
     WHEN:     Press Preview - Photo Opportunity.  Super Hero Sighting!
