Goodwill tour Museum of Flight 06-22-2019 Seattle, Washington Around the World with the Apollo 11 Crew 06-22-2019 Two months after Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins voyaged to the Moon, they undertook another strenuous but rewarding journey: the GIANTSTEP-APOLLO 11 Presidential Goodwill Tour. Serving as President Richard Nixon’s official representatives, the Apollo 11 crew visited over twenty countries on every continent in less than two months. Days after the Apollo 11 crew returned home, National Security Advisor Henry Kissinger called the tour one of the nation’s “effective policy vehicles.” Through the story of the GIANTSTEP tour, this talk will reflect on the deep interconnection between spaceflight and American diplomacy, from Project Apollo to today.

crater Museum of Flight 06-29-2019 Seattle, Washington Ancient Life on the Moon? 06-29-2019 Was there ever life on the Moon? Join astrobiologist Dr. Dirk Schulze-Makuch and hear about possible evidence of ancient lunar lifeforms! Given that the Moon is today a lifeless barren rock in space, it seems to be preposterous to suggest that there could have been life on the Moon in the past. Yet, 3.5 billion years ago major volcanic outgassing is thought to have built up at atmosphere of 10 mbar on the Moon, perhaps allowing temporarily habitable conditions with liquid water on the lunar surface for up to 70 million years, at a time when life had already originated on Earth. Magnetized rocks from the Moon recovered from the Apollo missions point to the possibility that the Moon had a geomagnetic field at that time protecting it from solar and cosmic radiation.

St. Louis Astronomical Society logo St. Louis Astronomical Society 07-01-2019 St. Louis, Missouri A Flag on the Moon - NASA's Apollo Lunar Landing Missions, and Beyond 07-01-2019 Each of nine Saturn V rockets carried three Apollo astronauts to the Moon between 1968 and 1972. As the world watched, each of six Lunar Modules carried two astronauts to the lunar surface to conduct experiments, bring back rock samples, plant the Stars and Stripes on the Moon’s surface, and leave the first sets of footprints in the lunar dust. How did the astronauts get to the Moon and return safely? What did they find? What have we learned about the Moon – and the Earth – since the Apollo missions ended?  Will humans again walk on the lunar surface, and will they come to stay?  This program presents an overview of the Apollo Lunar Landing missions, a look at the craters, mountains, and valleys of the lunar surface, and a glimpse of the return of humans to the Moon.

Half a century later, you can look at the Moon and see the same stars from your back yard. This program will show you how to find lunar features like the Sea of Tranquility, where “The Eagle has landed”.  You will see up close the craters, mountains, and valleys of the Moon’s surface from Apollo astronaut photos and modern robotic spacecraft images. You will learn about the bright stars and their constellation patterns visible now in the night sky, just as they were seen by Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins from Apollo 11. You will also learn how to identify the planets now visible. And you may choose to see the lunar features, planets, double stars, and star clusters through a telescope – like the telescope that you can borrow from this library!

Growing Beyond Earth Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden N/A Coral Gables, Florida Growing Beyond Earth 3000-12-31 Fairchild’s Growing Beyond Earth project provides South Florida middle and high school students an opportunity to conduct authentic botanical research in their classroom. This citizen science project provides opportunities to participate in plant experiments to schools registered for The Fairchild Challenge. Students will research which edible plants might be suitable for growth in microgravity aboard the International Space Station’s plant growth facility. The purposes of the experiments are to expand food options and increase plant diversity, by testing multiple edible plants for future space missions. Using equipment that mimics the “Veggie” system aboard the International Space Station, students are testing factors that may influence plant growth, flavor, and nutrition. Scientists at Kennedy Space Center will use students’ data to determine which plants should undergo further investigation.

Growing Beyond Earth Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden N/A Coral Gables, Florida Growing Beyond Earth 3000-12-31 Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden in partnership with  the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) on  Growing Beyond Earth The goal of the project is to assist NASA scientists in testing edible plant variety options for growth on the International Space Station's Veggie and the Advanced Plant Habitat system by providing middle and high school students with the opportunity to actively contribute to this authentic research. In May of 2015, Fairchild began a partnership with Kennedy Space Center (KCS) to help further NASA’s plant-based research by calling upon the Garden's large network of highly-engaged, STEM-minded, students and teachers. Most were already participating in ongoing citizen science projects through the award-winning Fairchild Challenge program. Together with NASA scientists, we engineered and installed plant growth chambers analogous to the Vegetable Production System (Veggie) in classrooms throughout South Florida — leveraging an army of nearly 50,000 middle and high school students and teachers in the nation’s fourth largest school district. Growing Beyond Earth (GBE) was designed to expand crop options and increase plant diversity by testing multiple plants that meet NASA’s criteria for growth and edibility.  Over the past two years, students have been testing factors that may influence plant growth, flavor and nutrition. NASA will use students’ data to determine which plants are selected for further testing and will be potentially grown in space. Through the NASA-partnered GBE project, students have tested over 100 varieties of edible plants for germination rates, growth habits and edible biomass production. After confirming that our experimental growth chamber produced similar results to the International Space Station (ISS) Vegetable Production System (Veggie), students helped NASA choose the "cut and come again" procedure to use on the ISS as a method to continuously provide fresh produce. GBE is unique in its focus on real scientific research relevance to NASA mission planning, as fresh produce will be an important part of the astronaut diet on long duration missions beyond Earth orbit.

At the end of the project week, the students use their 2D plans to create a 3D model their new colony on Mars. A guest speaker will meet with campers for a discussion on these topics. 
America Kopernik Observatory & Science Center 06-21-2019 Vestal, New York America's Return to Spaceflight 06-21-2019 America’s Return to Flight! – Presented by Tish Bresee, NASA Solar System Ambassador. April 11th, SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket successfully launched the Arabsat-6A satellite from Complex 39A at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The payload included Cubesats along with an exciting “Green Propellant” and a precise Atomic Clock that can run 9 million years before losing one second of time. Wow! That was cool. This summer, (2019) Space X will fly again with a crew of two Americans onboard the Dragon crew capsule- Colonel Doug Hurley (Owego Free Academy graduate) and Colonel Bob Behnken (Maryland Heights, Missouri). Come to Kopernik to dream with us as American Tech sends Americans out there into Space again.

Moon Rush: The New Space Race Denver Museum of Nature & Science 07-09-2019 Denver, Colorado Moon Rush: The New Space Race 07-09-2019 The race to the moon is on again! In his new book Moon Rush: The New Space Race, veteran space journalist Leonard David explores our enduring fascination with the moon, from ancient myth to plans for a future “Moon Village.” David offers insider information about how the United States, its allies and competitors, and key private corporations, such as Moon Express and Jeff Bezos’s Blue Origin, plan to reach, inhabit, and even harvest the moon in the decades to come. Spurred on by the Google Lunar XPRIZE—$20 million for the first to get to the moon and send back images—the 21st-century space race has become even more compelling. David’s reporting and accompanying maps, graphics, and photographs shed new light on our constant lunar companion, offering reasons to gaze up and see it as never before. Advance Tickets Required.
