Agency To Display Artifacts During "Life At 50+" Expo
NASA would like everyone to look upon its Golden Anniversary as
a celebration of its 50 years of innovation and history for the
space agency... but it also means something else.
That's right -- NASA is now eligible for AARP membership. The
agency is taking the news better than most baby boomers,
On September 4, during the opening ceremony of the AARP "Life at
50+ National Event and Expo" at 9:30 am EDT, NASA will present AARP
with a photo montage honoring the organization's 50 years of
service to the senior community. The montage will include items
flown earlier this year on space shuttle Discovery.
In turn, AARP will present NASA with an oversized AARP
membership card to mark the agency turning 50.
The event will be held at the Washington Convention Center in
Washington, DC. Former astronauts Michael Coats, director of NASA's
Johnson Space Center in Houston, and Carl Walz, director of
advanced capabilities in the Exploration Systems Mission
Directorate at NASA Headquarters in Washington, will represent NASA
during the event.
In addition to the opening ceremony presentation, NASA will have
a substantial presence at the Expo to showcase some of NASA's
various programs and space hardware. Some of the highlighted
exhibits include a "NASA City and Home" Wii interactive display,
the Roll-Over Mars Rover and interactive Constellation Program
