In partnership with NASASpaceflight, the Intrepid Museum will present a live virtual astronomy program on Sunday, October 23, from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. ET. During this free event, discover AstroAccess and listen to the ambassadors of the program.
AstroAccess is an initiative dedicated to promoting the inclusion of people with disabilities in space exploration. Zero Gravity Corporation (ZERO-G) successfully conducted its first parabolic flight with a crew of 12 Ambassadors with motor, visual and hearing disabilities in 2021. Program Ambassadors Denna Lambert, Chief Diversity, Equity , inclusion and accessibility for NASA’s Early Stage Innovations & Partnerships and space journalist Sawyer Rosenstein will talk about the program, the first flight and the training they received. They will also give viewers a behind-the-scenes look at the upcoming flight scheduled for November 2022.
The event will be organized and co-produced by John “Das” Galloway, founder of Kerbal Space Academy, and moderated by Summer Ash, astrophysicist, rocket scientist and freelance writer. A pre-show will take place from 3:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. with the Intrepid Museum Access Team talking about some of the museum’s access initiatives.
American Sign Language interpreters and live captioning will be available during this program.
