NASA Glenn Brings the Excitement of Aeronautics and Space Exploration to Cleveland Black Expo
CLEVELAND -- The public is invited to visit NASA's exhibit at the Cleveland Black Expo, Thursday, June 30 through Saturday, July 2, at Cleveland State University Wolstein Center. Admission is free.

Visitors will be able to explore science exhibits and participate in fun, educational activities.

The exhibit will feature the popular "Picture Yourself in Space" photo booth, where visitors can have their free souvenir photo taken as an astronaut; the solar system scale, where visitors can find out how much they would weigh during a rocket launch, in space, or on another planet; and free NASA educational material. Eva, Glenn's 7-foot-tall inflatable astronaut, will also make a special appearance each day.
