Far-Future NSBE-HSC Program

 

Black Space Museum

(Or possibly Black Aerospace Museum – I prefer space, but may need to add aviation)

 

 

Presumably would be operated by a spin-off nonprofit organization devoted solely to the museum.

 

Possible locations:

·        Clear Lake (near JSC)

·        Hobby Airport

 

Note:  May become future permanent site of Black Space Expo

·        African American Astronauts

o       Special Anderson, McNair and Lawrence exhibits

·        Space hardware – flight hardware, test articles, and replicas

·        “Hands on Science” sections

·        African and other non-American Black space history

·        Education Center
