BENEFITING: UNITED STATES SPACE FOUNDATION COLORADO

EVENT DATE: Jul 04, 2013

THE STORY:

We are bringing the Marshall Space Center's space shuttle artifact exhibit, Conquering LEO (lower earth orbit) to the Space Foundation Discovery Center this summer.  While the exhibit doesn't cost anything, we do have to underwrite the cost of shipping it to the next museum or science center that gets it...so not only will you be helping us, you'll be helping another great educational nonprofit.

Conquering LEO was created at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center by the same engineers who designed and built the Shuttle's powerful propulsion systems. The exhibit touches on the Shuttle program's accomplishments and risks, with information about Shuttle crews, the orbiter, main engines, booster rockets and external tank.  Artifacts, including a 1:15 scale Shuttle model, space suit parts, astronaut food and touchable items including tires, hatches andd engine components add to the fun and educational value.

During the three decades of its existence, the Space Shuttle program (and crews) made remarkable technological and scientific discoveries in Low Earth Orbit that are being used now in preparation for further deep space voyages.
