The Mayborn Museum Complex made history recently with the help of the Heart of Texas Amateur Radio Club. The museum linked up with the International Space Station June 27 as it orbited over Honolulu, Hawaii.
Astronaut John Phillips answered questions from elementary school-age children about his favorite space food, what the stars look like from space and how he sleeps at night, during a June 27 ham radio connection between the International Space Station and Baylor University's Mayborn Museum Complex.
The Mayborn Museum will sponsor a live interview with astronaut John Phillips aboard the International Space Station at 11 a.m. Monday, June 27. The cost for admission is $4 for children and $6 for adults. Local children whose questions were pre-selected will talk to Phillips as the space station travels across the horizon.
Character interpreters who portray two of the most notable voices of the American Revolution - Thomas Jefferson and Patrick Henry - will debate the issue of religious freedom as they participate in "Crossroads in American History" June 9 at Baylor University.
