Coming Jan. 17 – May 3 is “Astronaut,” an exhibit that features hands-on interactive displays that allow guests to investigate the reality of what it takes to be a space explorer. Members will have the first opportunity to explore this temporary exhibit before it officially “launches” at the Members-Only Sneak Peek on Thurs., Jan. 16, 5 – 7 p.m. with a special program at 6 p.m. with Dr. Lawrence DeLucas.
As a member of the seven-person crew of Space Shuttle Columbia for Mission “STS-50,” called the United States Microgravity Laboratory-1 (USML-1) Spacelab mission, Dr. DeLucas traveled more than 6 million miles, completing 221 orbits of earth and logging over 331 hours in space. In 1994 and 1995, Dr. DeLucas served as the Chief Scientist for the International Space Station at NASA Headquarters in Washington, D.C.
Check out the School and Visitors Guide for more information about the exhibit and plan to attend the exciting members only event.
