The New England Air Museum, 36 Perimeter Rd., in Windsor Locks, held its annual Space Expo Sunday, April 7, inviting families and space enthusiasts to the museum for an "opportunity to learn about the past, present and future of space exploration." Fifteen exhibitors from across New England attended the event offering learning labs and hands on activities included trying on space suits, building model rockets, and touching a 70 pound meteorite. Former astronaut Col. Jerry Ross (USAF Ret.), the first human to be launched in space seven times, was also at the event to speak about his experiences.
