Astronauts aboard the International Space Station don’t get a break just because the holidays are near, but they do find fun and unique ways to hold their own festivities while floating in microgravity. Join us on Facebook Live as space history curator Jennifer Levasseur shares some fun facts about how astronauts celebrate the holidays from their orbital homes.

Planning to attend in-person? Meet in the Moving Beyond Earth gallery. 


Every Wednesday at 12:30 p.m. we will go live on the National Air and Space Museum Facebook page with an Ask an Expert talk. We’ll select a different aviation or space topic each week, and a Museum staff member will discuss the history, stories, or personalities related to a specific artifact or exhibition in the Museum. Tune in on Facebook Live each week to join the talk and ask our experts questions.
