On January 15, 2008, the National Federation of the Blind hosted an event to celebrate the publication of Touch the Invisible Sky, another in the series of tactile astronomy books written by Noreen Grice using photos supplied by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).

Noreen Grice displays two pages of tactile photos in the book she authored with Simon Steel and Doris Daou, both affiliated with NASA.A number of young people were present at the event. Here, two of them listen to an audible report of magnetic field interaction on the solar system planetary distance comparison machine on loan that day from the Goddard Space Flight Center.
