Celebrating 100 Years of Flight
The Future Takes Off


BROADCAST DATE: TUESDAY, APRIL 20, 2004

Join us on a trip through time as we continue the celebration of the first hundred years of flight with a visit to the Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum's newest facility, the Steven F. Uvdar-Hazy Center.

Filled with history-making aircraft and spacecraft, the Center brings to life the work of the inventors and scientists who created them, portrays the courageous aviators and astronauts who flew them and explains how our world is changing because of progress in aviation and space exploration.

As students view icons, such as the SR-71 Blackbird and the Space Shuttle Enterprise, they learn about advances in flight from actual pilots, engineers, and curators. Demonstrations and hands-on activities enrich the learning experience.
