NASA Day Sparks Rocket Fever in Young and Old
NASA Day on the Square in Huntsville, Al., drew hundreds of space exploration fans Saturday to see exhibits and demonstrations of the latest endeavors to reach beyond Earth’s orbit. The annual event celebrates NASA Marshall Space Flight Center’s 50+ years building space exploration capabilities.
Kids and adults flocked to the Boeing exhibit to don astronaut boots and pose on ‘Martian’ soil. Boeing employees building the core stages and avionics for America’s new heavy-lift rocket, the Space Launch System, hosted the “Journey to Mars” exhibit, along with SLS college interns and local Boeing International Space Station engineers.
