Discovery After Dark: Humans In Space

July 20, 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the first landing on the Moon. As present day explorations in space continue, so too does our understanding of the universe and our place in it. Which is why NASA’s recent Twins Study represents a number of important milestones for research in space. This includes their first “One Year Mission” milestone, focusing on identical twin astronauts Scott and Mark Kelly. This study aims to help scientists better understand the effects of long duration spaceflight on human health. Dr. Susan Bailey, Professor and Radiation Cancer Biologist at Colorado State University, was one of the principal investigators on the Twins Study and will present her work and what it means for future long-term space travel and habitation.

Presentation will begin at 6:30pm followed by Q&A.

Tickets: $10/$8 for museum members

Experience the Aurora

Over seven months in the Arctic Circle, our crews captured timelapse images of the Aurora Borealis with high resolution digital SLR cameras outfitted with fisheye lenses. The results are spectacular. For the first time the aurora has been captured as it was meant to be experienced, as a display that covers the entire sky. This immersive show shares the science behind the aurora and tells the story of our quest to find and photograph the aurora for wraparound display in full-dome theaters.
