The Skylab's 40th Anniversary Reunion at Kennedy Space Center

This is a heads up for all of you who loves to know what's going on down here in Space Coast. On July 27, 2013 at 11AM to 11:45 AM, big event will happen at the Astronaut Encounter in NASA's Kennedy Space Center here in Florida.

If you come visit #KSC on this date, you can be part of the event and witness it. It is included with General Admission so; be part of the Skylab 40th Anniversary Reunion at Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. On this day, Fred Gregory who is a veteran NASA astronaut will moderate a discussion with 10 astronauts from the Skylab team.

The Skylab was the first and only American space station in orbit around the Earth in 1973 and 1974. I was two years old then but, even in my elementary years, the basic knowledge of Skylab is pretty much covered in our Science class.

Anyway, here are the list of Astronauts who will be gracing the discussion on the said event:

Karol “Bo” Bobko, Vance Brand, Jerry Carr, Bob Crippen, Owen Garriott, Ed Gibson, Jack Lousma, Bill Pogue, William Thornton, and Paul Weitz.

Skylab launched aboard the last of the Apollo-era Saturn V rockets on May 14, 1973. The Skylab’s mission was to study the sun and Earth as well as the effects of zero gravity on the human body on long-duration space flights and other scientific experiments.

Take note that this is a limited-seating event only which will be held at the Astronaut Encounter at the Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex. I will see you there.
