Dr. Katherine Auld, Astronomer, Solar System Ambassador with NASA/JPL, and Adjunct Faculty Member in the Science Department of Northwest Arkansas Community College will present the NASA program History of the Space Shuttle Mission to families on Wednesday, November 5th at 4:00PM in the Walmart Community Room of Bentonville Public Library.
Since 1981, NASA space shuttles have been rocketing from the Florida coast into Earth orbit. The five orbiters — Columbia, Challenger, Discovery, Atlantis and Endeavour — have flown more than 130 times, carrying over 350 people into space and travelling more than half a billion miles, more than enough to reach Jupiter. Designed to return to Earth and land like a giant glider, the shuttle was the world's first reusable space vehicle. More than all of that, though, the shuttle program expanded the limits of human achievement and broadened our understanding of our world. In this program, we will look back at the Shuttle's historic missions, the people it flew into space, and its achievements.
