Press Release From: Glenn Research Center
Posted: Thursday, July 28, 2016

NASA’s Glenn Research Center brings the excitement of aeronautics and space exploration to Solon Home Days, Friday, July 29 through Sunday, July 31 with the Journey to Tomorrow traveling exhibit.

The festival will be held at Solon Community Park, 6679 SOM Center Road in Solon, Ohio. NASA’s exhibit will be open on Friday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m., Saturday from 12:30 p.m. to 10 p.m., and Sunday from 2 p.m.to 7:30 p.m.

Visitors entering Journey to Tomorrow will be immersed in fun-filled digital learning stations, exciting games and engaging activities that challenge visitors to think about what it takes to be able to fly, what it is like to live and work in space, and why planets rotate around the sun.

NASA will also feature MOVE, the Mobile Orion Vehicle Explorer. This exhibit is a replica of the Orion Multi-Purpose Crew Vehicle, which will transport humans to interplanetary destinations beyond low Earth orbit, such as asteroids, the moon and eventually Mars and return them safely back to Earth.

Also available will be the popular "Picture Yourself in Space" photo booth, where visitors can receive a free souvenir photo taken as an astronaut; and free NASA informational material. Glenn's larger-than-life costumed character, Eva the Inflatable Astronaut, will make a guest appearance.
