Speakers on NASA subjects, including LADEE lectures

LADEE is scheduled to launch at 8:27 p.m. on Sept. 6, and we’ll provide a live broadcast to watch Ames’ spacecraft launch to the moon!
If you’d like to be our guest for this special evening, please RSVP now as tickets are limited! Tickets are free, but parking and attendence is limited!
NASA’s LADEE observatory is a small robotic mission that will orbit Earth’s moon to gather detailed information about the lunar atmosphere, conditions near the surface and environmental influences on lunar dust. LADEE will also demonstrate NASA’s first dedicated laser communication system. And if all goes according to schedule, we’ll watch a live televised broadcast of LADEE being launched to the moon from NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia on Sept. 6, 2013!
If you’d like to find out more about LADEE, visit www.nasa.gov/ladee and follow the mission on Twitter at @NASALADEE.
NOTE: If LADEE’s launch is cancelled or a postponed, this event will still occur on Sept. 6 and will not be re-scheduled for the next launch attempt. Since this is an outdoor evening event, please wear appropriate attire (Bring a chair, blanket, etc.).
