What’s it like to explore space? Join Anythink for a special evening with NASA astronaut Kjell Lindgren to find out. Dr. Lindgren has logged 141 days in space, including more than 15 hours of spacewalking – activities performed outside of the spacecraft. During this time, he’s conducted a variety of scientific experiments, including the “Veggie” lettuce experiment, where U.S. astronauts ate crops grown in orbit for the very first time. Dr. Lindgren joins us back on Earth at Anythink York Street to share his adventures.

Join Adams County 4-H as they teach middle school aged students the parts of a rocket along with different forces that help control rockets and their flight patterns. Using unusual supplies, students will learn all about rocketry by building their own, miniature rockets. Students are sure to have a fun time as they blast off into the world of rocketry! Appropriate for students 5th through 7th grade.

Children, Tween

Depending on your age, the Apollo Program either belongs to history or memory. It’s been 47 years since the first human beings walked on the moon, and time, with its abiding patience, has eroded the impact of this monumental achievement. But great films act like wormholes through the fabric of time. Films collapse the distance between past and present and liberate history from the history books. The Apollo Program has been the subject of dozens of films, but two in particular stand above the rest.
