MN Space Frontier and MN Astronomical Society once again returned to Bailey Elementary's Hand's On Science Family Night.

Joining with dozens of other groups and businesses they put on displays visited by hundreds of kids and parents and teachers showing a bit of the fun of Science in the work place and home hobbies. Each group put up a display table that was staffed by its members.

MAS offered a orrery of the Earth-Moon system, and some MAS and MN Planetarium info handouts.

MN SFS offered a life sized Mars rover and to check out the weight of a bottle of water on Earth, the Moon and Mars. They also showed a large screen display of ISS orbit status. Visitors also got to take home their own a litho of Space station in its current configuration.

My thanks to Jim Cran, who helped staff the MAS/MN SFS displays, NASA Glenn for supplying some of the photos and handouts and Susan Nord Bohlke "Hands on Science" Parent Coordinator for inviting us again.
