Andrew Chaikin Lecture at OMSI in Portland, Friday January 22nd! January 14, 2010

Posted by Nick Azer in Andrew Chaikin, OMSI, Picture of the Week.

Preeminent lunar historian, lecturer. and expert Andrew Chaikin (author of A Man on the Moon and the current occupier of my coffee table, Voices from the Moon) is going to be making an appearance to discuss the LCROSS results—and give a guided tour of the Moon–here at OMSI in my native Portland, OR on Friday, January 22nd at 7pm! The event is free with a $2 suggested donation.

I’ll be there in person to check it out, and if you have the money, there’s a spiffy $250 Space Gala fundraiser the next day (being 26 and scraping by in typical PDX fashion, no gala for me this time ;) )

This all leads up an OMSI’s new, extensive future-of-space exhibit: “SPACE: A Journey to Our Future“. You’ll be able to tour a replica of a future lunar camp (!), build an Ares rocket, inspect actual rocks from Mars and lunar meteorites, and more… I’m pumped about the lunar base bunk beds! :) The exhibit runs January 30th-May 31st, 2010.
