TOPIC: Life in Space featuring NASA Astronaut Jessica Watkins
DATE: Sunday, February 19 from 3:00pm – 4:30pm ET
In April 2022, NASA Astronaut Jessica Watkins launched as a mission specialist on NASA’s SpaceX Crew-4 mission to the International Space Station. During her six-month stay in space, she and her fellow crew members observed geological changes on Earth and conducted a variety of experiments in microgravity, including studying the effects of long-duration spaceflight on humans. Join us for a special conversation between Watkins and former NASA Astronaut Mike Massimino, live from Intrepid Museum’s Kids Week festivities, where they will discuss life in space and what’s next for Watkins as part of the Artemis Team.
