The free public presentation will take place Saturday, June 20, at 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. at Glenn’s Visitor Center. Foltz is a native of North Olmsted, Ohio.

Visitors will see a real spacesuit and learn about planning and conducting spacewalks as well as the research behind the development of a new spacesuit that will be used to explore the moon and Mars.

Everyone attending this special event can take home a digital photograph from the “Picture Yourself in Space” photo booth. For kids, there will be quick craft activities.
