STENNISPHERE'S ASTRO CAMP SATURDAY TO EXPLORE MOON MISSIONS
Jan. 11, 2005
 


Children ages 9-12 will learn what makes rockets fly as they build and launch a model rocket during StenniSphere's next Astro Camp Saturday, 'Trading Spaces: From Earth to the Moon.' The session blasts off Saturday, Feb. 12, 2005. Crewmembers will design, build and test a rocket based on the same principles that would be used to build a rocket suitable for returning astronauts to the Moon, traveling to Mars and beyond. They will look back at the exciting days of Apollo and will look ahead to the future of space exploration: the Moon, Mars and beyond. The camp takes place 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at StenniSphere, the visitor center at NASA Stennis Space Center, America's largest rocket test complex. Cost is $50 per camper. To register or for more information call 1-800-237-1821 or (228) 688-2370 or visit
