NASA is going to let the community explore what it's like on the International Space Station.

According to The Indianapolis Recorder, the module entitled Destination Station which details the development of the station into what it is today, the inner-workings of life on the station and the ways astronauts are utilizing for scientific purposes, is arriving at the Indiana State Museum Saturday where it will stay until June 29.

"We are excited to work with NASA during their spring outreach campaign in Central Indiana," Damon Lowe chief curator of science and technology, and biology said in a statement from the museum. "NASA has created this amazing new platform that will expose, inspire and educate our youth about the important work behind and on board their orbiting outpost."

Visitors will be able to try their hands at various tasks on the station, and gain insight from Dr. Serena Aunon an astronaut at NASA, and Ian Meginnis a Z-2 spacesuit engineer with the administration.

Ask a NASA expert April 27 from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m.

Aunon will lead a lecture and autograph session at the museum April 29 from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

NASA is calling the third event scheduled for May 2 International Space Station Day where NASA's Driven to Explore portable exhibit will display a lunar touchstone from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The Lunar Touchstone is a special moon rock that only has four other counterparts out of all the rocks in the world according to information on the Houston Space Center's website.

Space X and NASA have been busy working on trips that will give astronauts more supplies on the International Space Station.

The latest is scheduled for Friday following at least two previous attempts March 30, and Monday for reasons such as a helium leak, and bacteria contamination.
