Space Day 2007

Family Day
Saturday, May 5, 2007
10:00 am to 5:00 pm
Throughout the Museum in Washington, DC

Space Day 2007 will be another action-packed day of astronaut appearances, hands-on activities, book signings, tours, and special stories for children, all surrounded by the world's most famous space artifacts.

Especially exciting will be a sneak peek at the much-anticipated successor to the space shuttle, the Orion Crew Exploration Vehicle. This Lockheed Martin-designed spacecraft of the future will be on view in the shadow of one of the most historic spacecraft of the past - the Apollo 11 command module, Columbia.

Have a blast learning how you can build your own model rocket with the Northern Virginia Association of Rocketry. The group will bring their own home-built rockets for you to see and lots of information on building a flyable rocket.

Local robotics teams will show off their latest creations with a robot petting zoo. The teams will demonstrate their expertise in building and running robots for competition.

Participating organizations include Lockheed Martin, NASA, and AMSAT-Radio Amateur Satellite Corporation.


Space Day 2007 at the National Air and Space Museum is made possible by the generous support of Lockheed Martin.
