WASHINGTON -- NASA and the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum invite media to preview the "Space: A Journey to Our Future" traveling exhibit on Thursday, June 12, at 11 a.m. EDT. The museum is located at Independence Ave. and Sixth Street S.W. in Washington. The exhibit highlights current projects in space exploration, including satellites, space telescopes and methods of living in space. It also provides a glimpse of future human space travel.

Highlights of the exhibit include a lunar base camp, where visitors can experience what it would be like to live on the moon, an up-close look at NASA's Constellation Program, and a model of Orion, the spacecraft that will take human explorers back to the moon. There's also an illustrated timeline of NASA's 50 years of space exploration and a multimedia 360-degree "Future Theatre."

Interested reporters must R.S.V.P. by email to Isabel Lara or Sonja Alexander by 3 p.m., June 11. The exhibit and NASA's participation in the Folk Life Festival on the National Mall later this month will continue the agency's 50th anniversary celebration.

The exhibit was developed and is being transported by Evergreen Exhibitions of San Antonio to help celebrate NASA's 50th anniversary.
