NASA Makes First Appearance at Tinker Air Show
Cleveland -- Visitors to the Star Spangled Salute Airshow at Tinker Air Force Base in Oklahoma will have their first opportunity to see how NASA is "Leading the Second Century of Flight."
On June 9 and 10, 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.
A highlight of NASA's exhibit will be the Picture Yourself in Space Photo Booth where visitors can have a souvenir photo of themselves taken as an astronaut floating in space.
Also, there will be interactive exhibits, including a scale where visitors can see what their weight would be on other planets and the moon 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, including temporary tattoos and bookmarks.
NASA Glenn representatives will be at the exhibit to answer questions during the exhibit hours of 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. on Saturday and 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
