ELMO JOINS SPACE SHUTTLE CREW AT NEW YORK CITY EVENT
NEW YORK -- Elmo, Sesame Street's furry red monster, will appear at
NASA's free public event at 10:15 a.m. EDT on Wednesday, Aug. 17, at
the Eventi Plaza located behind the hotel on the Avenue of the
Americas between 29th and 30th Streets in New York City.

of the STS-135 space shuttle mission.
There, Elmo will join the crew of space shuttle Atlantis. Elmo
was recently a special guest at Kennedy Space Center in Florida on
July 8 where he saw the liftoff of the final space shuttle mission.
NASA is pleased to be working with Sesame Street and focusing on STEM
education, encouraging children to think critically about science,
technology, engineering and math.
The New York event, titled "What's Your Favorite Space?," will be held
from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The Eventi Plaza will be transformed into a
miniature space outpost filled with displays including: an inflatable
Mars rover; demonstrations; interactive exhibits; video segments;
children's activities and more.
NASA has begun a reinvigorated exploration, innovation and technology
development program that promises to lead humans and robots to an
array of challenging destinations. Preview those destinations at the
Eventi Hotel through the eyes of the Hubble Space Telescope and the
scientific satellites that are the precursors to journeys beyond
low-Earth orbit and into deep space.
