The traveling photo kiosk is a hit at every event! This exhibit is a fun way to get people excited about the Goddard Space Flight Center, and NASA in general.
A digital camera captures the face of the participant and superimposes it into an astronaut helmet atop of a cool science image. Participants walk away with a neat keepsake photograph helping them to remember the event, and perhaps a sparked interest to learn more about NASA.
Lunar and Meteorite Sample Request Process
Requests for loans of lunar and meteorite sample disks are now managed by NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston. Visit the Lunar and Meteorite Disk Program website for more information.
Making a Request
NASA consists of its headquarters in Washington, D.C., and 10 field centers. Each center's exhibit program has been assigned a geographic region of responsibility. Please click here to see a color-coded pdf map showing which NASA center services your area.
NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., is responsible for supporting outreach and educational programs within the following geographic region: Connecticut, Delaware, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont and Washington, D.C.
Scheduling is on a first-come, first-served basis. Loan period is 1-7 days per request. If there are no scheduling conflicts, the exhibit can be extended for additional loan periods of 1-7 days. A new request must accompany each extension. Any request for extension should be made prior to the end of your original loan agreement, and is only approved upon an email confirmation from Goddard.
The exhibit may not always be available due to prior scheduling, maintenance, or updating. The traveling photo booth kiosk may be used indoors or outdoors. If outdoors, the exhibit must be under protective coverings that would shield it from any inclement weather, and should be setup on a dry, solid surface. Please note setup location in the "additional remarks" section of the application.
You should submit your request AT LEAST 8 WEEKS IN ADVANCE of your event date to allow time for scheduling, processing and shipping. If interested, please email Leslee Cork (firstname.lastname@example.org). You will receive an exhibit application and training manual to review, complete and sign.
Each requestor must purchase photo paper for their event and provide insurance coverage (as indicated in the Exhibit Application). One box of photo paper includes paper and ink roll and yields 600 photos. You can purchase photo paper (Mitsubishi Electric CK9046) from any vendor you choose.
NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center's transportation department will deliver and pick up the traveling photo booth kiosk to organizations within a 50 mile radius of Goddard at no cost.
Organizations outside Goddard's 50-mile radius will be responsible for covering round-trip shipping costs for the traveling photo booth kiosk. Our transportation department will prepare the shipping documentation and will have the kiosk ready for pickup by whatever carrier you select to ship the kiosk. The exhibit should be picked up from and returned to:
NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center
Bldg. 16W/Packing Shop
Greenbelt, MD 20771
M/F: Leslee Cork
Note: Crate dimensions are 26"x38"x76".
After your organization has borrowed the exhibit, feel free to email your comments to Leslee Cork (email@example.com).
