Have you ever wondered how black holes are formed or where to look in the sky for a planet? How do we know that there are more galaxies than our own? We all have questions about space, and in this live conservation meant for all ages and knowledge levels, experts will answer a few of them!

Join Dr. Samantha Thompson, curator of space history at the National Air and Space Museum, Dr. Rodolfo Montez, Jr., astrophysicist at the Smithsonian Astrophysical Observatory, and educators from the National Air and Space Museum to explore all of your astronomy questions in this live, casual conversation. They will share some of our favorite topics in astronomy at the Smithsonian, including space-based telescopes that humans have helped to launch, like the Hubble Space Telescope!

Register for this live discussion in advance here or join the event day-of here. This event will take place on Zoom.

This program is part of April’s Soar Together activities focused on human space flight. Caregivers may want to use our Wondering About Astronomy Together guide to explore this and other space-related topics with your young learners!
