The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum will present a Virtual Astronomy Live program on Thursday, November 19 from 5:30pm-7:00pm ET. This free event will explore Sounds from Space.
Take a tour from the Earth’s atmosphere to other planets and the Sun. Hear some amazing and natural sounds from the universe along with different sound clouds of space and in our solar system.
The event is hosted and co-produced by John “Das” Galloway, founder of the Kerbal Space Academy, and moderated by Summer Ash, an astrophysicist, rocket scientist and freelance writer.
This is the eighth in a monthly series of Virtual Astronomy Live programs.
The next iteration on December 17 will feature Spaceflight and Gaming.
Dr. Alexa Halford is a research scientist and the Associate Chief of the ITM Physics Laboratory, within the Heliophysics Science Division at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center. Halford is a prime example of what happens when you go to college in MN and take up space. She became a space physicist, and because she got her PhD in Oz, some times says x, y, zed instead of x, y, zee. When not having way too animated discussions about plasma waves, you can find her at the local bookstore coffee shop or in the garden.
Summer Ash: Summer Ash has been both a rocket scientist and an astrophysicist. She is a freelance science writer and communicator whose work has been published in The Atlantic, NBC News, Smithsonian, Now.Space, Scientific American, Slate, and Nautilus.
John “Das” Galloway: “Das” is a science outreach communicator who specializes in live, interactive video content. He is the creator of the Kerbal Space Academy, where he uses video games as a tool to start science and engineering conversations with viewers of all ages, and VECTORS Virtual Field Trips, which brings real-time interactive video to museums, events, and historical locations. “Das” also serves as a host and producer for NASASpaceflight.com.
