NASA Makes Debut at McConnell Air Force Base Open House
 
 
Cleveland -- Visitors to this year's open house at McConnell Air Force Base in Wichita, Kan. will have their first opportunity to see how NASA is "Leading the Second Century of Flight."

On July 14 and 15, NASA's Glenn Research Center will bring a variety of exhibits to showcase NASA's work to expand Earth's boundaries in the second century of flight.

Visitors to the exhibit will see an inflatable Crew Exploration Vehicle, which NASA is developing to take humans back to the moon no later than 2020, a space shuttle tire that has flown in space and a real moon rock.

Also, visitors will enjoy 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, including temporary tattoos and bookmarks.

NASA Glenn representatives will be at the exhibit to talk about NASA's future and answer questions during the exhibit hours of 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday.
