To the Moon: Snoopy Soars with NASA
Just before the first man landed on the moon, Charlie Brown and Snoopy soared through space with NASA’s Apollo 10 mission in May 1969. The exhibition To the Moon: Snoopy Soars with NASA examines the history of Apollo 10 and the Peanuts characters’ role in that flight and in the NASA Manned Flight Awareness safety program.
From November 17 to April 27 the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum will feature this exciting traveling exhibit from the Charles M. Schulz Museum. Explore the exhibit. Play in Snoopy’s Dog House. Learn about Space Technology and its impact on our everyday lives.

Apr 13 • 2pm • LECTURE
Pikes Peak Regional History Lecture Series -Bill Scott, Author of Counterspace - Space Wars & Counterspace - $5 suggested donation
When terrorists disable dozens of satellites, a technologically blind, deaf and mute America is pushed to the brink of nuclear war. (Fiction) Author Bill Scott, former Rocky Mountain Bureau Chief for Aviation Week & Space Technology magazine, and coauthor Mike Coumatos, a retired Navy test pilot, war gaming expert and ship’s commander, will discuss how they employed the power of fiction to make citizens and U.S. leaders aware of a critical threat to America’s security. Via two gripping, bestseller novels, Space Wars: The First Six Hours of World War III and a sequel, Counterspace: The Next Hours of World War III, they depicted how lives would change, if terrorists crippled the nation’s high-tech space infrastructure, by destroying U.S. satellites. Book sale and signing to follow. Please RSVP at 719-385-5990 or online. $5 Suggested Donation, Free for members.
