If you one of the millions thrilled with the successful launch of the Orion Spacecraft at Kennedy Space Center this morning, then you’ll want to visit the Orlando Science Center this weekend.

On December 6 and 7, the OSC will host some key players in the Orion test launch, for you to meet.

On Saturday, guests can meet Lockheed Martin’s Joe Mayer and Adam Ayala from 1pm to 1:30pm. Mayer is the director of government relations for Lockheed Martin and has supported the Orion program for the past seven years. Ayala is an engineer for Lockheed Martin Space Systems Company at the Kennedy Space Center, and works in the Neil Armstrong Operations & Checkout building where the Orion spacecraft was assembled.

Sunday, Mayer will return, and joining him will be Barry Bohnsack, a finance and program planning expert supporting the Orion spacecraft program. The two will be at the OSC from 1:30pm to 2pm.

Experience the Orion Spacecraft presentations with admission to Orlando Science Center which is $19 for adults and $13 for youth (ages 3 – 11). Tickets include access to all four floors of exhibits, giant screen and 3-D educational films, one Hollywood feature-length film, and live programming.
