The 2019 USS Yorktown Crew Reunion has been one of the best yet. Thank you to all of you who attended and those who participated. We had over 300 people registered with over 100 of them being Yorktown veterans. This year you could truly feel the nostalgia in the crowd, thank you everyone for your support and love for one another! We love to hear the stories you have to share. See you next year!

Also, thank you to NASA South Carolina Space Grant Consortium for being a partner in our “Splashdown: Recovery of Apollo 8” event on Saturday. It was a blast!
We’re here at North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences with NASA South Carolina Space Grant Consortium & North Dakota Space Grant Consortium, helping modify lessons and materials for all types of special needs learners. This two-day workshop shows educators what it’s like to learn differently, so they can plan more effective lessons for all learners.
Ten years ago our reunion registration was about eighty people, this year we have well over three hundred signed up! Thank you to all of you who make the reunion possible and will be attending next week. Here is the plan of the reunion days to help organize the week for you a little better. See you soon.

We are also excited to be pairing with the NASA South Carolina Space Grant Consortium this year for the first time to bring new elements to the reunion. Don't miss seeing rocks from the moon up close, meeting a journalist who covered several space missions, and even learning what it's like to organize a space mission.
Calling all special education teachers and informal : , along with NASA South Carolina Space Grant Consortium and North Dakota Space Grant Consortium, is hosting a workshop for of exceptional learners at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences Oct. 14-15. Register to attend today!

James Webb is prepping for a Christmas morning launch! 🎄This cutting-edge telescope is nearly 100x more powerful than the Hubble and will be able to capture images of galaxies millions of years in the past! Webb and its 18 gold-covered mirrors will orbit the sun nearly 1 million miles from Earth at a position called L2. The telescope will take about a month to reach L2 and two weeks to unfold its mirrors into full deployment configuration. Mark your calendars & set your alarms for this historic launch, Dec. 25th at 7:20 am ET. Merry Christmas & Happy Holidays!

UPDATE: NASA - National Aeronautics and Space Administration, ESA - European Space Agency, and Arianespace have confirmed a targeted launch date of Dec. 25 at 7:20 am ET (12:20 UTC) for the James Webb Space Telescope.
