SDPB Premieres “Space Age SD State Fair Grandstand Tickets Now On Sale South Dakota: Chasing The Moon All The Way Home” Vermillion, SD (July 3, 2019) — In conjunction with the 50th anniversary of the first manned lunar landing, SDPB is pleased to announce the premiere of “Space Age South Dakota: Chasing the Moon All the Way Home,” Thursday, July 18, 8pm (7 MT) on SDPB1 and SDPB.org. From the record-setting high altitude balloon flights launched out of the Black Hills’ Stratobowl, to South Dakotans working as NASA engineers, to the Earth Resources Observation Satellite Network in Sioux Falls, South Dakota has helped humankind “chase the moon” – and beyond – since the early days of space exploration. In addition, SDPB visits Florida’s Kennedy Space Center to meet Lee Solid, a 1959 graduate of the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology (SDSMT). Originally from Martin, SD, Solid first worked as a rocket test engineer. He also worked on the rocket that sent John Glenn into space and was present at the launch. And we’ll meet Scott Vangen, a 1982 SDSMT graduate who has worked for NASA, including with the shuttle program and as a backup payload specialist, making him one step away from flying in the shuttle.
