TULSA, Okla. — The Tulsa Air and Space Museum is gearing up to show the historic SpaceX launch that's scheduled for Wednesday, May 27 at 3:33 pm CDT.

The lobby to the museum's planetarium will open at 10 a.m. for visitors to enjoy televised interviews with NASA and aerospace specialists about the flight.

Then at 3 p.m. the full planetarium will open to showcase the launch from its 360-degree dome technology.

There will also be an open discussion with experts on the topic.

It'll be free for members, $15 for nonmembers, $10 for children 13 and under and $8 with a military ID.

The planetarium reopened last week with added safety measures during the pandemic. Employees are wearing masks, visitors' temperatures are checked at the entrance and social distancing guidelines are being followed.
