Space Exploration for All: You Can Discover Space

Mar 13, 2022

10:00am – 11:00am CT

The future of space discovery has arrived: It is possible to explore and interact with the Universe, even if you don't have a seat on the Dragon. Without professional training, even YOU can: deflect a near-Earth asteroid; go to Mars; discover a new and distant planet; or accompany a NASA mission to the outer realms of our solar system. It’s time for New Astronomy: a global, knowledge-based trend, through which truly anyone can directly contribute to space exploration and scientific discovery. When passion and technology converge, EVERYONE can explore space, from the comfort of their backyard or with a diverse community across the globe.
