Purdue Space Day 2002
Director: Gina Pieri
The 7th annual Fall Space Day dawned sunny and clear on Saturday November 2, 2002. VIP astronaut Col. John H. Casper and his wife Beth Casper, very generously gave their time and enthusiasm to a record 270 students from the surrounding counties. Col. Casper shared a video on his "Toys in Space" mission and he and his wife Beth were enthusiastic in joining in with the activities that were on offer. A record 85 Purdue University student volunteers signed to help the grade school students make the most out of the day. This year's theme was Christa McAuliffe's quote of December 7, 1985 "It's everybody's business to know about space".
