The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space museum will host a historic talk with crew members of the Space Shuttle Atlantis titled Last Mission to Hubble on Wednesday, November 12th,  2014 at 6:30 p.m. at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, located at Pier 86 (46th Street and 12th Avenue) in Manhattan. The conversation is part of the Intrepid’s HUBBLE@25 temporary exhibit opening on October 23rd, celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Hubble Space Telescope.

When Space Shuttle Atlantis launched in May 2009, all involved knew the repair mission would be the final visit to Hubble – the last chance to upgrade its systems and install new equipment, including a new wide-field camera, and if successful, ensure its operational future for years to come.

Join STS-125 mission commander Scott D. Altman; pilot Gregory C. Johnson; and mission specialists Mike Massimino, Megan McArthur and Michael Good; along with moderator Charlie Gibson, journalist and former ABC news anchor, for this special reunion – the first time the members of the crew will be reunited to speak to the public about their experiences on Space Shuttle Atlantis. Learn first-hand about the mission’s remarkable achievements, including setting a new record for spacewalking – 36 hours and 56 minutes during five spacewalks.

Tickets will go on sale to the public on October 1st, and to Intrepid Museum members on September 29th at Intrepidmuseum.org. Space for the event is limited. This event is $20 for the general public and $10 for Intrepid Museum members.

Please note that the panelists will not be available to autograph any memorabilia at this event.
