Sally’s Night

Join us Friday, June 16 from 5-7 pm to celebrate Sally’s Night, the 40th Anniversary of astronaut Dr. Sally Ride becoming the first American woman in space.

Cosmosphere Curator, Shannon Whetzel, will share stories of Sally Ride, Valentina Tereshkova, and Svetlana Savitskaya…women who broke barriers and whose stories are told through artifacts in Cosmosphere’s collection. 

The event includes cocktails, non-alcoholic beverages, and appetizers. It is free to Cosmosphere members and $15 for non-members. Ticket information coming soon.
