Hello Museum Musers,
The International Space Station (ISS) has given us a chance to feel what it is like to live on the ISS by walking through the life-sized simulated ISS on exhibit in the Wings Museum until October 28, 2011. There's only one Cockpit Demo Day per month, and it's tomorrow, October 8, 2011. This is a wonderful time to visit the Wings Museum, because there are lots of fascinating volunteers throughout the museum to answer your questions. Your Museum Muser Co-Hosts Richard and Curt will be in the museum volunteering at the Smart Cart. Museum Muser Fran will be available to introduce you to more museum volunteers. You'll have more time to talk with Richard, Curt and Fran on the morning walk before you go to the museum!
Tomorrow morning, before our museum visit, we are planning to go on a very special walk - rain or shine - with the first female captain of a jet airliner, Captain Emily Howell Warner.
If you haven't already done it, please RSVP online for this museum visit and/or walk at www.meetup.com/MuseumMuser/events/31309312, and invite your friends and family.
According to Weather.com, tomorrow's weather for our Lowry neighborhood area may be rainy and around 41 degrees. For all of you weather hardy walkers who dress to keep warm and dry, we can still fold paper airplanes inside the covered picnic gazebo in the park. Just in case it rains, we'll bring extra plastic bags to carry our paper airplanes. We can fly them indoors inside the Wings Museum after our walk.
Remember, the walk is free, but the museum has admission fees - here's the WingsMuseum.org link for museum admission fees. Of course, if it doesn't rain, we can fly our planes in the Great Lawn Park next to our picnic gazebo area.
You can see the real ISS moving across the sky without even using binoculars. For sighting times and maximum elevation from the horizon in our area visit the NASA ISS site for Denver, Colorado.
We're looking forward to seeing you tomorrow!!
Museum Muser Co-Hosts for this Event,
Richard Rew, Curt Carlson and Fran Rew
