Don’t miss the NASA Exploration Systems Directorate/Space Launch System (ESD/SLS) exhibit when it is on display here at Clark Planetarium. In partnership with ATK and NASA, the SLS exhibit will be open to the public February 26 – March 2, 2014.

Guests will be able to explore launch system and flight hardware with an interactive touch screen presentation, take an up-close look at a scale model of NASA’s next rocket, the Space Launch System and multi-purpose crew vehicle, the Orion space capsule. Visitors can also have their picture taken as an astronaut.

According to NASA: “The SLS will be NASA’s first exploration-class vehicle since the Saturn V took American astronauts to the moon over 40 years ago. With its superior lift capability, the SLS will expand our reach in the solar system, allowing astronauts aboard the Orion spacecraft to explore multiple, deep-space destinations including near-Earth asteroids, Lagrange points, the moon and ultimately Mars.

Remember our exhibits are always free so be sure to get in and see this before it’s gone.

  1. The astronauts will be here Wednesday evening for a panel speaking event that goes 7 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. Then they will be back here Thursday morning from 10:30 a.m. – 1 p.m.

  2. I worked at ATK, (formerly Thiokol), for 22 1/2 years and happy to see that they are still going strong. I actually have met Colonel Precourt in Sept 2009 and would like to see him again. Therefore I expect to visit this great exhibit today.
