Tulsa Air & Space Museum

OK, before you start getting all snitty about Tulsa having a space program, you need to realize a few things: Tulsa has been involved with the space INDUSTRY since the Apollo program. In fact, my wife's father worked on Apollo One - Apollo Four RIGHT THERE IN TULSA! McDonald-Douglas also completed work on the Space Shuttle Cargo Bay Doors.

Emily's class took a field trip to the Tulsa Air & Space Museum last Tuesday. I wasn't even aware of its existence, but all I can say is "Wow! What a museum!" I'd encourage anyone around Tulsa to take a day and go to the museum and planetarium.

Emily was selected to be part of the Space Shuttle Launch Team.

Here is her class & teachers with the museum docent.
