Note that the "Saving Hubble" show mentioned will be at the Vanderbilt 
Planetarium in Centerport, December 5th (see the details below), as well 
as various Manhattan events.

And yes, the Mercury thing was great - Wally Schirra and Scott Carpenter 
made quite a comedy team! With a little help from John Glenn on the big 
screen... thanks for letting us know about that.
