Spring Gala Tickets Now Available!

Tickets are now available for the third annual Spring Gala to benefit the Johnsville Centrifuge and Science Museum. The event will be held on April 28th from 5 to 10 PM at the VE Club at 130 Davisville Road, Warminster, PA. Tickets are available for $65 each with tables of eight and ten available.

As you may know, this past year saw the return of the original centrifuge gondola to Bucks County after 47 years at an outside storage yard in Maryland. In addition to our educational outreach programs, proceeds from this year’s event will go towards preservation of this important and unique artifact that was used to train the likes of Alan Shepard, John Glenn and Neil Armstrong.

The program for this year’s gala will include remarks by Dwayne A. Day, Space Historian and Senior Program Officer for the Aeronautics and Space Engineering Board of the National Research Council/National Academy of Sciences. Dr. Day also served as an investigator on the Columbia Accident Investigation Board in the wake of the disintegration of STS-107 during its reentry on February 1, 2003. Dr. Day will speak on the topic of the history of the US Space Program and little known facts about the Russian Space Program. It promises to be an interesting and informative evening.
