Fleet Science Center

First Date: A Fleet Love Story

The Fleet has members throughout the United States. But Dr. Stephen Skaper and his wife, Dr. Laura Facci, are our only international members. While living in San Diego, Stephen joined the Fleet the year we opened, and over the past 45 years, he and Laura have supported us while they lived here, then in England and now in Italy, where they are semi-retired.

From Hawaii With Love!

 Membership is the perfect gift for family and friends!

Meet two of the Fleet Science Center’s most loyal supporters! Mitch Pflugh and Will Pflugh are two of the Fleet’s most loyal friends—going back to the 1980s! Mitch is a former board trustee and Will oversaw the construction of the Fleet’s building expansion in the late 1990s. Even though they moved to Hawaii, they haven't forgotten how much they enjoyed visiting the Fleet.

US Postal Service to Unveil a Total Eclipse of the Sun Forever Stamp at the Fleet Science Center

Total Eclipse of the Sun Forever Stamp
By Nathan Young
 
On Wednesday, August 2, at 6 p.m., the U.S. Postal Service will unveil the Total Eclipse of the Sun Forever Stamp during a ceremony at the Fleet Science Center.
 
The Total Eclipse of the Sun stamp is the first U.S. stamp to use thermochromic ink, which reacts to the heat of your touch. Placing your finger over the black disc on the stamp causes the ink to change from black to clear to reveal an underlying image of the moon.
