NASA Continues Presence at Cleveland Air Show
For more than 20 years, NASA's Glenn Research Center, Cleveland, has attracted visitors of all ages to its exhibit tent at the Cleveland Air Show. This year on September 2, 3 and 4 will be no exception as NASA features aeronautics and space flight displays.

The theme of NASA's exhibit is "Exploration" and features a 30-foot tall inflatable space shuttle. The space shuttle, the most complex machine ever built, is the workhorse of the space program today and laying the foundation for future spacecraft missions to the moon, on to Mars and further into the solar system.

Also on hand periodically throughout the weekend will be NASA Glenn's goodwill ambassador, Eva, the larger than life inflatable astronaut, who will interact with visitors to the NASA exhibit. Other attractions include a space shuttle tire that was flown in space, the air-conditioned AeroSpace Environmental Traveling Bus and "Picture Yourself in Space" photo booth where visitors can have their free souvenir photo taken as an astronaut.

Additionally, interactive kiosks include the Exploration Kiosk, the Astronaut Lounge Kiosk and Brain Bytes, where visitors can learn a multitude of facts about space travel, astronauts and our solar system.

NASA handouts to include temporary tattoos and bookmarks will be available for visitors to take home.
