Exploring Space Lectures

The 2013 Exploring Space Lectures

Extraordinary Voyages: 50 Years of Exploration

The 2013 season of the Exploring Space Lecture Series at the National Air and Space Museum was devoted to "Extraordinary Voyages: 50 Years of Exploration." Fifty years ago, Mariner 2 flew by Venus and became the first successful mission to another planet. In the ensuing half-century, spacecraft have traveled to many strange and remarkable worlds throughout our solar system. Lectures focused on recent innovative missions and took a look back at the 50-year journey with four distinguished lecturers on the forefront of planetary exploration.

The Exploring Space lectures are free, but tickets are required.
