The American Museum of Natural History in New York will soon be opening up a new exhibition called “Beyond Planet Earth: The Future of Space Exploration,” and they are live-streaming a special public program at 12 Noon EST (17:00 UT), that includes NASA astronauts Mike Massimino and John Grunsfeld, crew members on mission STS-125 to repair the Hubble Space Telescope, and is hosted by Hayden Planetarium Director Neil deGrasse Tyson and Curator Michael Shara.

The discussion will focus on themes from Beyond Planet Earth, the STS-125 mission, and the temporary laser art installation From The Distant Past. For more information see the AMNH website, and watch a teaser video of “Beyond Planet Earth” below.

    hey this is cool! Thanks for the heads up.

  2. I was excited to attend, get one of my questions asked, as well as speak with the panel afterward. On top of being such brilliant and accomplished people, they were all incredibly friendly and down to Earth (sorry about the pun). True role models for young folks.


  3. Oh, I’d like to also add that the exhibit was amazing. Great artifacts and stations that can teach visitors what is hopefully in-store for space travel over the coming decades and centuries to come, as well as the fun lessons on just how big the universe is.
