INTREPID SEA, AIR & SPACE MUSEUM TO HOST
DISCUSSION AND BOOK SIGNING WITH
SPACE AND SCIENCE PHOTOGRAPHER MICHAEL SOLURI
*****
Michael Soluri and Miles O’Brien to discuss new book,
“Infinite Worlds: The People and Places of Space Exploration”

Photographer Michael Soluri and science journalist Miles O’Brien will discuss the exclusive behind-the-scenes access Soluri was given to capture NASA’s preparations for the 2009 STS-125 Hubble Servicing Mission on Wednesday, December 10th at 7:30 PM at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, located at Pier 86 (46th Street and 12th Avenue) in Manhattan.  Soluri’s images were captured in the new book Infinite Worlds: The People and Places of Space Exploration, a collection of stunning photographs and accompanying essays that capture the often unseen astronauts and unsung technicians, administrators, ground crew and tools that completed the final servicing mission of the Hubble Space Telescope. Books will be on sale and available for signing.

Michael Soluri’s photography has appeared in American, European and Brazilian print media publications and in digital outlets including TIME, NPR, Discover Magazine and WIRED UK.  He is the co-author and picture editor of What’s Out There: Images from Here to the Edge of the Universe published in nine languages by Duncan Baird in 2005 and Cosmos: Images from Here to the Edge of the Universe, also in nine languages by Duncan Baird in 2007.

Miles O’Brien is a veteran independent journalist who focuses on science, technology and aerospace.  He is a producer and correspondent for the PBS NewsHour, a producer and director for NOVA, and a regular correspondent for the PBS documentary series FRONTLINE and the National Science Foundation Science Nation series. He was formerly the science, environment and aerospace correspondent for CNN, where he anchored various programs, including American Morning. 

The discussion is part of the programming surrounding the Museum’s temporary exhibit HUBBLE@25, celebrating the 25th anniversary of the launch of the Hubble Space Telescope.
