Once Upon a Try : Google Arts & Culture’s New Online Exhibition

Explore Humanity’s Greatest Inventions And Discoveries in a

New Interactive Online Project By Google Arts And Culture,

In collaboration with the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum

Wednesday, March 6th – Today, Google Arts & Culture launched Once Upon a Try – the largest online exhibition about inventions and discoveries ever curated. Collections, stories and knowledge from over 110 renowned institutions across 23 countries, including the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in New York City, are brought together, highlighting millennia of major breakthroughs and the great minds behind them.

The Intrepid Museum contributes Concorde: A Supersonic Story, a new exhibition that focuses on the technology and lifestyle of Concorde, which flew passengers across the Atlantic Ocean at speeds reaching Mach 2.04—twice the speed of sound. This aircraft reflected decades of engineering, imagination and innovation. The exhibition lets users experience Concorde through objects, photographs, videos and oral histories from the Intrepid Museum’s collection.

Everybody can now explore more than 400 interactive exhibitions that pay tribute to humanity’s greatest leaps in science and technology progress, and the visionaries that shaped our world, as well as tales of epic fails and happy accidents. Once Upon A Try also lets you dive into Street View to tour the sites of great discoveries, from deep underground inside CERN’s Large Hadron Collider to high in the sky onboard the International Space Station.

Susan Marenoff-Zausner, president of the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum said: “For years, Intrepid Museum visitors have explored the Concorde Alpha Delta G-BOAD aircraft located on the Museum’s pier. This new digital exhibition will allow users to have global access to the in-depth story of Concorde, a technological phenomenon and iconic design that captivated the world. We are proud to partner with Google Arts & Culture once again to expand the Museum’s physical reach and inspire users to reach new heights of ingenuity and innovation.”

“We invite everyone to participate in the first phase of an online collection that celebrates innovation and science. Through inspiring, and at times surprising, stories from over 100 partners, you can explore the inventions and discoveries that have shaped our world. Once Upon a Try is all about that first attempt, the idea, the journey of fulfilling a dream, and we hope it’ll give people that extra boost to find their very own eureka moment ,” said Amit Sood, director of Google Arts & Culture.
