Join us as the National Air and Space Museum and NASA introduce the 2013 Astronaut Candidate Class. Eight new astronauts will take the stage in the Moving Beyond Earth gallery to talk about the selection process, what skills they hope to bring to their new job, and when they might take flight. The candidates will also speak with astronauts aboard the ISS and take questions from the audience.
Each class refreshes the face of NASA, showing the world that they are continuing forward in expanding space exploration. To learn more about the 2013 class, visit: http://1.usa.gov/L703qn
