The Kansas Cosmosphere’s Friday opening of the public observation area where folks can watch the conservation work on Apollo era F-1 rocket engines at SpaceWorks is back on again.
At one point Thursday, the opening had been cancelled for unspecified reasons. Advertising and an online story announcing the opening were deleted from hutchnews.com.
Then about 6:30 p.m. came word that the opening was back on again, but again without explanation.
However, the bottom line appears to be that the off-again, on-again nature of Thursday’s developments had nothing to do with the condition of the artifacts or the Cosmosphere’s preparations for the opening.
The first of four tours on Friday is at 11 a.m. , starting at the Cosmosphere. Visitors will be taken to SpaceWorks by shuttle bus after viewing the Apollo gallery in the Hall of Space Museum.
Cost is $1 for Cosmosphere members and $5 for non-members. Call 800-397-0330 for reservations.
