The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum will present a Virtual Astronomy Live program on May 22 from 3:00pm-5:00pm ET.

A 3:00pm pre-show will feature an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at work being conducted at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, including sustainable food experiments in the Space Station Processing Facility and the recent NASA SpaceX Crew-4 launch.

Developing a deep-space habitat will allow a crew to live and work safely in space for long durations on missions to explore the Moon and Mars. The Habitation Systems Development office is a multi-center NASA team working together to develop sustainable living quarters, workspaces, and laboratories for astronauts on next-generation space missions. Hear from these experts as they give viewers an inside look into the project.

The event is hosted and co-produced by John “Das” Galloway, founder of the Kerbal Space Academy.
