NASA Exhibit Comes to TASM

The Tulsa Air and Space Museum & Planetarium will play host to a pair of events Saturday.
“Driven to Explore,” a NASA exhibit that is a multimedia experience that showcases the Shuttle program, the International Space Station, and NASA’s next major program, Constellation will be from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Constellation is the program that will return Americans to the moon. The centerpiece of this exhibit is one of only seven lunar samples, or moon rocks, that people are allowed to touch.
This 3 billion-year-old moon rock was brought back to earth aboard Apollo 17, the last manned mission to the moon in 1972.
Also, Oklahoma award-winning artist Mike Wimmer will be signing his latest children’s book entitled, “One Giant Leap” from 10 a.m. to noon.
Wimmer, along with long-time friend and author Robert Burleigh, collaborated on the book that commemorates America’s landing on the moon. Wimmer is a published author, illustrator and artist.
Some of his previous works include Will Rogers: An American Legend, Flight: The Journey of Charles Lindbergh and Stealing Home: Jackie Robinson Against the Odds. One Giant Leap will be available in the TASM museum store and you will have the opportunity to have Mr. Wimmer sign the book and answer questions about the book.
