Space Embrace

NASA leads a galactic boot camp about Mercury and Venus.


Science geeks get their moonwalk on as the region's leading space-exploration experts talk about the solar system during Inner Space. The program starts with an update on the planets Mercury and Venus, as NASA prepares for its upcoming Messenger spacecraft trip to the universe's innermost planets. At 11 a.m., planetary-geodynamics professor Steven Hauck of Case Western Reserve University will describe his input on the Messenger mission. And "solar-system ambassador" Jeffrey Kilmer rounds out the workshop with a 1 p.m. lecture on the history of exploring Venus. The program runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. today at the Nasa Glenn Visitor Center, 21000 Brookpark Road. Admission is free, but reservations are required. Call 216433-9653.
