About This Event

Join retired NASA Astronauts Joan Higginbotham and Mike Massimino as they discuss stories from their time in space and what's coming up in space! Joan Higginbotham is an electrical engineer, rocket scientist and retired astronaut, with dual master’s degrees, and a 35-year career working with Fortune 500 companies in the aerospace, energy, and retail sectors. During her nine-year tenure at NASA’s Kennedy Space Center (KSC), she participated in numerous space shuttle launches from the firing room, the “nerve center” for launches -- an impressive accomplishment for anyone. 

Viewers who have a passion for space science participate and meet astronauts, scientists, engineers, and other talents through these monthly virtual and onsite programs that explore relevant space-themed topics.

Each month we give our viewers a behind-the-scenes look into the world of space, science, and technology.  We have leading scientists and engineers, as well as current and former astronauts who come on and talk about the latest and newest STEM-focused content within the world of space.  These experts give us a real behind-the-scenes preview of what they are working on exclusively for our program. Topics each month are diverse and inspire innovation and curiosity.  Every month the viewers hear and see something new and look to us to learn and get inspired.
All programs are live-streamed via the Intrepid Museum’s Twitch, Facebook, and YouTube or NASASpaceflight’s YouTube channel.
