It came down with a... whisper.

Unlike demolition, deflation is a little quieter, as witnessed by those who watched the Explorer Dome's 16 year run hosting special exhibits, weddings and parties at the St. Louis Science Center came to an end Monday morning. It will take about six weeks to clear up the area and plans for the next exhibit remain under discussion.

Science Center president Bert Vescolani says the new exhibit will feature the area's strengths,"Celebrate what the region does really well and some of the things that are special about this region. We are fortunate to have such a huge science, technology, engineering, math community, so we've got a lot of content and a lot of resources to work with."

It took less than ten minutes to deflate the Explorer Dome, which opened in 1997 as a temporary exhibit space.

A building on the national historic registry now has an expiration date.

If a buyer does not come forward to purchase the building in the next month, it will be torn down. Cupples 7, at 11th and Spruce in downtown St. Louis, has been designated for demolition after engineers said the building is an imminent danger.

Mayor Slay says the only hope for the building is for an angel investor to step forward and renovate it. Cupples 7 was built between 1894 and 1917.
