Canada Aviation and Space Museum Officially Launched

Ottawa: The Canada Aviation and Space Museum hosted Canadian Astronaut, Dr. Robert Thirsk today, as he enthralled over 300 local school children with a special presentation about his recent space mission. This occasion marked the first event hosted at the Museum under its new name: the Canada Aviation and Space Museum. This initiative is the result of a dynamic new partnership between the Canada Science and Technology Museums Corporation (CSTMC) and the Canadian Space Agency (CSA).

"As one of Canada's national cultural institutions, we are pleased to announce this partnership with the CSA that will generate dialogue and engagement for visitors of all ages," said Denise Amyot, President and CEO of the Canada Science and Technology Museum Corporation.

Local students experienced a video presentation by Dr. Thirsk, a chance to become special reporters for the Museum's Canadians in Space special-edition newspaper, and fun crafts and aerospace activities. The Canada Aviation and Space Museum also unveiled the first phase of its From Air to Space exhibition, featuring a select assortment of Space-related artifacts.  

 "After a six-month spaceflight on the International Space Station," said Dr. Thirsk before taking the stage, "I am delighted to be speaking at the Aviation and Space Museum today where we are also celebrating the Museum's expanded mandate and commitment to showcasing Canada's accomplishments in space. While onboard the International Space Station, I had opportunities for personal reflection and I am convinced that exploration, innovation and advanced education are important values for our nation to uphold.''

"Today was a fitting way to launch the new Canada Aviation and Space Museum," noted Stephen Quick, Director General of the Canada Aviation and Space Museum. "It was an honour to have one of Canada's finest astronauts with us on this special day, and it was clear that the students were having the time of their lives."

Dr. Thirsk became the first Canadian astronaut to fly a long duration expedition mission aboard the International Space Station where he lived and worked in space for 188 days. From May to December 2009, Dr. Thirsk served as a member of Expedition 20/21 and assumed responsibilities for the maintenance and repair of the ISS, while conducting experiments on behalf of Canadian and international researchers.

The Canada Aviation Museum has changed! Now the Canada Aviation and Space Museum, learn all about the wonder of flight, from the Silver Dart to the International Space Station. It is one of three museums of the Canada Science and Technology Museums Corporation and is located at the intersection of the Aviation and Rockcliffe Parkways, just ten minutes from Parliament Hill. See the Museum's website for hours of operation and membership details.

High Speed Networks Integrated with Airports
High speed trains refer to passenger rail systems running at operational speed between 200 and 300 km/h. They have been developed in Japan, France, Germany, Spain and South Korea. Another high speed system in Taiwan, linking Taipei to Kaohsiung, is scheduled to be completed in 2006. The high speed train passenger system era truly originates from Japan. More->

"Aerial Highway" Critical for poor countries
From Airline Industry. Without a rational "Aerial Highways" system lifting tourists in and flying goods and services out to global markets, the world's poorer countries will be "sentenced to abject poverty," said the head of a development agency. Speaking this week to European aviation chiefs assembled in Oslo, Lelei LeLaulu, president of Counterpart International, observed terrestrial highways, roads and bridges are recognised as essential components of infrastructure responsible for turning new frontiers into thriving communities as goods and commodities were transported to markets.

From Northern Skies to Southern Shores and Desert
Having enjoyed a lifelong fascination with the vast and rugged North Country and the Alaska-Yukon area in particular, the story of Aaska Airlines is particularly intriguing. It is as romantic as any profile of energy, initiative and the rewards of following one's dream. As it affects the lives of those who lived in Northwestern Canada and the USA, the modern age of exploration started with the famous bush pilots, who pioneered the Air Highways, carrying every type of cargo imaginable, often performing daring deeds of rescue. Several of this illustrious group started their own airlines and became living legends. Watch this space for our version of the Alaska Airlines Story, plus constant updates on its current services along with news about its sister company, Horizon Airlines.
