Intrepid Museum After Hours: Journey to the Moon and Mars
On March 1 from 5:30 to 8 p.m., take a tour through space and time, from the early days of space travel during the space race to present-day explorations of Mars. This unique program at Intrepid Sea, Air and Space Museum is open to current and former service members only. Guest speakers will include present-day astronauts who will regal the audience with tales of their past and future space explorations and what it means for the future development of human understanding. Audience members will be able to get up-close and personal with model replicas of the Perseverance Mars rover and Ingenuity drone on temporary loan from NASA. The scientific conversations will continue over a catered dinner held at the space museum.
