The Intrepid Museum in New York City will present a free Virtual Astronomy Live program on Sunday, November 20 from 3:00pm to 5:00pm ET.  In this event, participants will hear NASA scientists and engineers talk about new space expedition technology and how the innovations are making exploration of the Moon, Mars and beyond more attainable.

NASA’s Technology Demonstration Missions (TDM) works to overcome scientific and engineering challenges and create the technological innovations needed to overcome them. After rigorous testing, these advancements are turned into cost-effective, revolutionary new technologies and utilized in NASA, government and commercial space missions.

Trudy Kortes, Program Director of Technology Demonstrations for Space Technology Mission Directorate, and Tawnya Laughinghouse, Program Manager for Technology Demonstration Missions, will talk about these newly proven technologies and how they will enable future NASA missions to pursue bolder goals, make human missions safer and more rewarding, and enable new expansion of space industry in the government and commercial sectors.

The event is hosted and co-produced by John “Das” Galloway, founder of the Kerbal Space Academy, and moderated by Elysia Segal, the Producer of Public Programs at the Intrepid Museum and a NASA Solar System Ambassador.
