NASA Makes First Appearance At McGuire Air Show
 
 
Cleveland--Visitors to Air Expo 07 at McGuire Air Force Base in Wrightstown, N.J., will have their first opportunity to see how NASA is "Leading the Second Century of Flight."

On May 12 and 13 NASA's Glenn Research Center, Cleveland, will bring a variety of exhibits to showcase NASA's work to expand Earth's boundaries in the second century of flight.

People coming to the exhibit will see a 30-foot tall inflatable space shuttle, a space shuttle tire that has flown in space and a real moon rock. The space shuttle allows humans today to build the world's largest orbiting laboratory, paving the way back to the moon, on to Mars and farther into the solar system.

Also, there will be interactive exhibits, including a scale where visitors can see what their weight would be on other planets and learn interesting facts about space travel.

While at NASA's exhibit, visitors should keep their cameras handy to take fun photos of themselves as an astronaut or pilot. NASA handouts will be available for visitors to take home.

NASA Glenn representatives, including New Jersey native and Willingboro High School graduate David DeFelice, will be at the exhibit to talk about NASA's future and answer questions.
