From the soaring and breathtaking cliffs of Norway to the calm and inspiring immensity of the Mojave Desert, from a child's daunting first day of school to the exciting world of skydiving and base jumping, Adrenaline Rush explores the psychological and physiological forces behind risk taking and the physics involved in high-risk activities.
Adrenaline Rush examines why the human mind and body crave danger as viewers experience breathtaking views of skydiving over the Florida Keys and a 4,265-foot jump from a legendary Norwegian cliff. The film also follows skydivers as they prepare to undertake a unique scientific experiment: trying to fly the parachute imagined in 1485 by Leonardo da Vinci, the first parachute design ever recorded.

Mission to the Moon
What’s awesome about our Moon? What tools do space scientists use to explore beyond Earth? This lab explores ideas about astronomy, planetary science, and how scientists explore the universe. Students make and take home their own chart of moon phases.
Ages 3 – 6. General Admission is not included in the price of the ticket.
Space Junk | 3D
After half a century of space exploration we are now faced with what has long been a staple of science fiction – an orbiting junkyard of cast-off space debris. With media headlines periodically warning us of debris falling from the skies, orbital debris – or "space junk" – has finally risen to the forefront of social consciousness. But what is space junk? How did it get there? Just how big, and serious, is the problem?
Narrated by Academy Award® Nominee Tom Wilkinson, Space Junk is the first movie to explore the exponentially expanding ring of debris that threatens the safety of our planet's orbits. From the stunning depths of Arizona's Meteor Crater to an unprecedented view of our increasingly crowded orbits 22,000 miles above earth, the film offers dramatic visuals, both real and animated, to describe the threat of orbital debris.
Former NASA scientist and the "Father of Space Junk," Don Kessler reaches back to the beginning of our solar system for understanding and guides us through the challenges we face in protecting our orbits for the future. At risk is the future of space exploration and the safety of the extensive satellite network that powers our modern day communication systems. This visually explosive journey of discovery weighs the solutions aimed at restoring Earth's orbits.
Duration: 40 mins. | Rating: All Ages

Oregon Star Party 2016
Oregon Star Party 2016
Oregon Star Party’s planning committee is pleased to announce that the 29th annual Oregon Star Party will take place from August 2 through 7, 2016 at Indian Trail Spring in the Ochoco National Forest. Well known for its dark skies, Oregon Star Party is one of the largest annual star parties in the United States.
This year’s line-up of activities includes a variety of workshops, a fascinating round of speakers, and a mix of old and new activities. The food cart promises new food items, and ice will be offered for sale each day. The committee is pretty excited about this year's star party!
Oregon Star Party's mission is to provide attendees the opportunity to meet people who share an interest in astronomy, learn something new, reconnect with old friends and make new ones, and just plain have fun. We welcome and encourage families and amateur astronomers of all ages.
At Oregon Star Party, activities are not limited only to night sky viewing! Beginning Wednesday, there will be a daily variety of activities available for nearly all ages. We have an assortment of speakers whose subjects range from an astrophotography workshop to cosmology. Mentoring programs provide one-on-one time with a knowledgeable volunteer to assist beginners in learning their way through the night sky, develop skills with telescopes, or to solve a viewing problem. Daily activities are scheduled in the Youth Tent, along with a swap meet, telescope park and a Friday afternoon walkabout as well.
Online registration for Oregon Star Party 2016 has now closed. On-site registration will begin on August 2. Please remember that on-site registration accepts only check or cash. To speed up the on-site registration process at OSP, download and complete the registration form and bring it with you along with the appropriate fees.

ABOUT THE FILM
Five high school students from different walks of life endure a Saturday detention under a power-hungry principal (Paul Gleason). The disparate group includes rebel John (Judd Nelson), princess Claire (Molly Ringwald), outcast Allison (Ally Sheedy), brainy Brian (Anthony Michael Hall) and Andrew (Emilio Estevez), the jock. Each has a chance to tell his or her story, making the others see them a little differently -- and when the day ends, they question whether school will ever be the same.
Release date: February 15, 1985 (USA)
Director: John Hughes
In addition to the bite-sized tasting menu, the Empirical Cafe will be serving burritos, hotdogs, grilled cheese, and movie snacks, plus beer, wine and non-alcoholic beverages.
All ages welcome.
