Armstrong Museum to host selection of ‘space’ animals

July 18, 2014

As part of the Armstrong Air and Space Museum portion of the Summer Moon Festival, a special presentation featuring species of animals who have gone into space will be presented at the museum Sunday from 1 to 3 p.m.

A representative from the Boonshoft Museum of Discovery in Dayton will be bringing a variety of animals to discuss how they played a role in space experiments over the years and how they continue to help researchers.

Although the animals themselves have not actually been in space, many of the species that will be presented have “ancestors” who were part of the space program.

“The Boonshoft Museum will bring a variety of animals they have in their live animal collection that are representative of animals that have been in space,” Armstrong Air and Space Museum Director Christ Burton said.
