The San Diego Space Society is holding a Junior
Space Explorers Launch Picnic from 1:00pm to 4:00pm
at Morley Field in Balboa Park (at Texas and J Street),
celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the Apollo 11
Moon Landing. Look for the San Diego Space canopy.
Bring your own lunch and a blanket; they'll provide both
air and water launch pads and help turn your 2-liter
soda bottles and rolled-paper tubes into awesome
water and air rockets.
Email [address removed] for questions, or if you
have empty 2-liter soda bottles to donate.
No TMS-SD participation is planned for this event.
