Space Exploration: Ask Me Anything

Date TBA

In the 20th century, the space industry was home to a small set of government organizations. In the 21st century, advancing technologies have made the space industry more accessible to international communities, both private and public. Ask Emily Calendrelli (The Space Gal) and Bernard Harris (National Math and Science Institute) your questions about NASA, exploring space, colonization of other planets, and more in this AMA session.
As Chief Executive Officer of the National Math and Science Institute, Dr. Harris leads the organization’s efforts to improve teacher effectiveness and student achievement in STEM education. A veteran astronaut for over twenty-five years, he has logged more than 438 hours and traveled over 7.2 million miles in space and was the first African-American to walk in space.
Emily Calandrelli is a co-Executive Producer and host of Emily's Wonder Lab on Netflix (premiers Summer 2020), the Executive Producer and host of FOX's Xploration Outer Space, and a correspondent on Netflix's Bill Nye Saves the World.
