Join Geocaching and Pacific Science Center for a special evening of out-of-this-world fun (literally). A Geocaching game piece known as a Travel BugŪ is hitching a ride to the International Space Station on November 6th. U.S. astronaut Rick Mastracchio will carry the Travel Bug on his six month mission and use the small metal piece with a unique tracking number, as a tool to teach students back on Earth about geography and science.
Watch the launch from Kazakhstan live in the Pacific Science Center Laser Dome. Doors open at 6pm. The launch is scheduled for 8:08pm. An Astronomy Expert will be onhand to offer play-by-play of the launch. Before the launch, enjoy free activities for all ages, including a space themed laser light show. This is an all ages event with fun and excitement in store for everyone.
