Final Shuttle Launch viewing on the North Carolina Outer Banks

While the first weather report isn’t looking favorable for getting the final space shuttle launch off as scheduled on Friday July 8 at 11:26am, I’ll be out at the Wright Brothers National Memorial in Kill Devil Hills, NC where I’ll be helping the National Park Service host a celebration of the Space Shuttle program.  The event starts at 10:30 a.m. with a talk and videos of the history of the Space Shuttle program leading up to the scheduled launch at 11:26am. Q & A will follow.  The event is free to visitors to the memorial.

for science educators, outreach volunteers, amateur astronomers, or maybe just me
