According to the segment producers, the episode will actually open at the Museum's Support Center on Eddy Drive where Larry has a heart-to-heart talk with an anthropomorphic dummy and ponders the impact that space has had on New Mexico and the world. From there he travelled to the museum for a crash course in rocket science, an artifact endangering tour of the museum, somber visit to the grave of HAM the Astrochimp, and an explosive finale in the parking lot.

Orwoll, who was the brave soul escorting Larry through the museum, recalls a particular incident with "Larry and the artifact". "We don't want to give the show away, but the look on Larry's face was priceless," said Orwoll. "Larry is one of those people who can make anything funny, but when reality strikes it's hysterical!"

For sneak peeks at the segment, see the embedded two clips highlighting Larry's experiences in space, rocket building with Museum Education Specialist Michael Shinabery and an emotional, yet "hungry," moment at HAM's gravesite with Orwoll.

Will Larry overcome his issues with glue and become a rocket scientist? Will HAM the Astrochimp share his bananas with Larry? What can be more explosive than dozens of rockets launching all at once? For the answers to these questions and more, tune in to the History Channel this Wednesday night at 7:00 pm.

Cliff LentzDaniel (Larry) is a naturally funny guy. I met him at a PRIMOZAC event last year before a Philadelphia Eagles Game.

I mentioned how much I enjoyed the show where he visited Mission Control. He told he everybody there was REALLY SERIOUS but deep down, they all have a good sense of humor!
