Have you wondered what a day in space would be like? Would you like the opportunity to ask people who work for NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) questions about life in space? If you answered “Yes”, then don’t miss the program “A Day in Space” to be held on May 15, 2017 at 6:30pm in Salem Public Library’s Quaker Room. Presenters Elaine Mauro Pappas and Robin Pertz from NASA Glenn Research Center will talk about space flight and what a typical day for an astronaut would be including sleeping, waking up, eating meals, personal hygiene, activities, space walking, and a description of the return home. They will also bring space travel-related exhibit items such as: space suit, sleeping bag, models, food tray, and more! This program will be an exciting way to get a closer look at space travel!

This presentation is for all ages, open to the public and free of cost to attend. Please register online at www.salem.lib.oh.us, or call the library at 330-332-0042 or stop in at 821 E. State St. Salem, OH for registration assistance.
