Hello. I'm considering going to Purdue Saturday to see Neil Armstrong speak at Purdue University. I was just wondering if anyone had been to something like this and could give me an idea of what he might talk about in what I'm sure will be a fairly short speech, and what the average turnout is for something like this. It's about a 3 hour drive for me and I just wanted to know if I should start out exceptionally early if it's going to be swamped with people. I know he won't sign anything, but does he ever just shake hands or anything like that at these type of appearances? Thanks for the help!

Jason, as each event is different, I would suggest that you try asking your questions to the organizers at Purdue University. They should able to provide you an estimated turnout (as they would have to plan for this) as well as what the schedule for the event includes.
