Orion Launch Party

Join folks at the Challenger Learning Center of Maine in Bangor for Family Science night this Thursday evening. It will be a celebration of NASA’s new human spaceflight rocket, Orion!

Orion is built to take humans farther than ever before, possibly even to Mars. Thursday’s launch is a four-hour flight that will test many systems pertaining to the launch and re-entry, like parachutes and the heat shield, systems that are critical to the safety of Orion’s crew.

Family Science Night, like many of the Challenger Learning Center’s programs, is for all ages. You can see more from CLC of Maine at the Maine Science Festival in March–just three more months!
