Event Description:  Enjoy the spectacle of the starry sky as you experience Far Out Fridays at the Adler Planetarium on the first Friday of every month! Scope out the many activities including educational activities for children and families, telescope viewing of the night sky, unlimited shows in the historic Sky Theater and the world's first StarRider Theater, periodic lectures by leading space science specialists and Adler astronomers, and Doane Observatory tours. In celebration of the 50th anniversary of the Sputnik launch, the October 2007 Far Out Friday theme is 'Rockets'. Far Out Friday runs from 5 pm to 10 pm. Included in Far Out Friday admission will be a special lecture at 7 pm by Francis French: 'The First Person to Fly a Rocket Into Space: The Story of Yuri Gagarin'. Gagarin's life was full of amazing experiences, including a harrowing childhood in World War II war-torn Russia. Mr. French features these and many more stories in two books that have been recently published by the University of Nebraska Press: 'Into that Silent Sea: Trailblazers of the Space Era, 1961-1965' and 'In the Shadow of the Moon: A Challenging Journey to Tranquility, 1965-1969'. Both books will be available from the Adler's Infinity Shop for signing by Mr. French immediately following his presentation.
