NASA's Journey to Tomorrow Traveling Exhibit Featured at Flag City Balloon Fest

The excitement of exploration is coming to the Flag City Balloon Fest in Findlay Ohio. The public is invited to visit NASA Glenn Research Center’s Journey to Tomorrow traveling exhibit from 4 to 8 p.m. Friday, Aug. 9 and from noon to 8 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 10.

The 53-foot trailer is air-conditioned and wheelchair accessible and packed with hands-on educational activities and digital learning stations.

The exhibit engages guests in real world challenges relative to both aeronautics and space exploration. Visitors can explore technology on computer kiosks and hands-on workstations which include NASA Spinoffs where guests can learn about how NASA technology improves our quality of life; a quiz in Sci-Fi vs. Science Fact, where visitors can find out how much they know about space travel and the search for extraterrestrial life; and perform small experiments in a glovebox.

Other activities include a solar system scale, where a person can find out how much they would weigh on another planet like Jupiter; and a planetary gravity simulator where guests can learn how gravity changes from planet to planet.

Visitors also will have a chance to view various models including NASA’s new Space Launch System rocket and the Orion Crew Module, as well as a real moon rock.
