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.

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