MEDINA: Retired astronaut Mike Foreman will make a special appearance during the city’s Bicentennial Homecoming Week next month — along with a visit by NASA’s Journey to Tomorrow traveling exhibit and a replica of the Orion spacecraft.

Foreman, who grew up in Wadsworth, will talk about his career with guests and answer questions at 1 p.m. July 5 at the Medina Library, 210 S. Broadway St.

He also will meet with people from 4 to 5 p.m. at the Journey to Tomorrow exhibit, a 53-foot trailer that includes informational stations, activities and a moon rock brought to Earth by Apollo 17’s crew members.

NASA’s Glenn Research Center in Cleveland is bringing the exhibit to the celebration. It will be open from 4 to 8 p.m. July 5-6 and from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. July 7 in the Medina County Administration Building parking lot on East Liberty Street.

The Mobile Orion Vehicle Explorer also will make an appearance at the celebration. The replica of the Orion spacecraft, which will carry astronauts on their missions, will be in the parade. The Bicentennial Celebration Parade travels through Medina Square starting at 4 p.m. July 4.

NASA, which is celebrating its 60th anniversary this year, also will distribute “Golden Astronaut” tickets to tour Glenn Research Center on Sept. 29. NASA is randomly distributing the tickets at events throughout the summer.
