The stars will come out at the Frontiers of Flight Museum when NASA astronauts join a former Dallas Stars player to launch a new exhibit and an out-of-this-world space education initiative.

This celestial evening reception, titled Exploration Space, features guest speaker Capt. Fred Haise, Apollo 13 Lunar Module Pilot. Col. Walter Cunningham, Apollo 7 Lunar Module Pilot, and Dallas Stars great Marty Turco, join Capt. Haise for the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the Museum’s new planetarium, Space Odyssey Capsule (SPOC).

Exploration Space is a fundraising event that will include a VIP reception with Capt. Haise, Col. Cunningham, and Mr. Turco. The ribbon-cutting ceremony of SPOC will be followed by an opportunity to enjoy viewing the stars in the planetarium.

SPOC is a portable digital planetarium system which uses innovative nightshade simulation and visualization software for teaching and exploring astronomy, Earth science, and related topics. This 6-meter dome planetarium features a unique fisheye lens and allows guests to have a 360-degree visual experience offering perfect viewing from any position.
