Event information

What are the tools needed for collecting samples? What is the training needed to prepare for this type of exploration? Hear and learn from Kelsey Young, a research space scientist at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, and Trevor Graff, who has participated in five Mars missions and is the chief scientist at NASA Johnson Space Center’s Astromaterials Research and Exploration Science Division, who are on the front lines planning, designing tools, and developing methods and science objectives for astronauts to collect samples on the Moon and eventually Mars. The program is hosted and co-produced by John “Das” Galloway, founder of the Kerbal Space Academy, and moderated by Summer Ash, an astrophysicist, rocket scientist and freelance writer. An interactive live preshow will take place at 5:00pm ET hosted by a Museum educator. The preshow is supported by a grant from the Robert & Toni Bader Charitable Foundation.
