On Jan. 19, Pulham Talks About “Exploring” Space  with the Space Foundation

On Saturday, Jan. 19, at 2:00 p.m., Space Foundation CEO Elliot Pulham (pictured right) will give a free public lecture entitled Blast Off! Exploring Space with the Space Foundation, where he will talk about the many ways the Space Foundation makes space interesting and accessible to students, teachers and the general public.

Relationship Supports Schulz Exhibit

The Space Foundation is partnering with the Museum to support the special traveling exhibit from the Charles M. Schulz Museum that examines the history of Apollo 10 and the role characters from Schulz’s popular Peanuts comic strip played in that flight and in the NASA Manned Flight Awareness safety program. We are  supporting the exhibit by providing space spin-off products for display, graphics, an exhibit model, guest lecturers, promotional support and children’s interactive activities.

The exhibit, panel discussion and lecture are free and open to the public. The Pioneers Museum is located at 215 South Tejon Street, Colorado Springs, Colo.
