Join us for a special evening with Dr. David Kring of the Lunar and Planetary Institute on the history and future of spaceflight.

This evening’s presentation will celebrate the launch of the first human in space, the flight of Yuri Gagarin on this day in 1961, and the first flight of the Space Shuttle on this day in 1981, with a look forward to the possibilities of human spaceflight aboard NASA’s new Orion crew vehicle as it travels around the farside of the Moon, which is the nearest, most accessible unexplored region in the Solar System.
