NASA Opening Langley For One Day

October 2, 2007

NASA is planning to open its Langley Research Center for the first time in six years for one day. The center is celebrating its 90th anniversary. It's home to the first astronauts and the world's fastest water powered sled.

On October 27th the center will open up to the public. NASA says its scientists, engineers and technicians throughout Langley's 220 buildings continue to play a pivotal role in air and space travel.

They also are working to return astronauts to the moon, make the skies safer and more efficient and help contribute a better understanding of the Earth's atmosphere.
