RELEASE : 07-011
 
 
Media Invited To Tour New NASA Traveling Exhibit
 
 
Cleveland -- Media representatives are invited to NASA's Glenn Research Center tomorrow from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. for the public debut of Glenn's new traveling exhibit, Journey to Tomorrow. The exhibit will allow people in communities throughout the U.S. a chance to experience the excitement of exploration in air and space without leaving home.

The exhibit is housed in a 53-ft trailer that takes visitors on a journey through interactive activities and hands-on learning stations that culminates in an up-close encounter with a moon rock collected during the Apollo 17 mission. Some of the hands-on opportunities available for exploration include a lunar lander simulator, glovebox activities that demonstrate the complexities of working with simple tools in space and a quiz on space travel.

The exhibit will be on display during this weekend's Star Gazing event hosted by Glenn's Visitor Center. In addition to the trailer, a new fuel cell demonstration and a full-scale model of Orion's service module are also exhibited on the grounds near the Visitor Center.
