These will include a special edition of the Museumís Scientists at Home program in which Museum Curator Ruth Angus will discuss how imagination has led to scientific innovationóincluding human missions to space, a fun at-home space activity for children on the Museumís science website for kids OLogyand a live guided virtual flight that will let viewers blast off from Earth and travel to the ISS and beyond while discussing what it takes to plan a trip to space.

The festival will culminate in a watch party of the launch itself, featuring live commentary from Hayden Planetarium Director Neil deGrasse Tyson, Museum astrophysicist Jackie Faherty and Museum Curator Michael Shara.


SpaceFest programming, which will be accessible via individual links available at, includes:

American Museum of Natural History (

The American Museum of Natural History, founded in 1869, is one of the worldís preeminent scientific, educational, and cultural institutions. The Museum encompasses 45 permanent exhibition halls, including those in the Rose Center for Earth and Space and the Hayden Planetarium, as well as galleries for temporary exhibitions. It is home to the Theodore Roosevelt Memorial, New York Stateís official memorial to its 33rd governor and the nationís 26th president, and a tribute to Rooseveltís enduring legacy of conservation. The Museumís five active research divisions and three cross-disciplinary centers support approximately 200 scientists, whose work draws on a world-class permanent collection of more than 34 million specimens and artifacts, as well as on specialized collections for frozen tissue and genomic and astrophysical data and on one of the largest natural history libraries in the world. Through its Richard Gilder Graduate School, it is the only American museum authorized to grant the Ph.D. degree and also to grant the Master of Arts in Teaching degree. Annual visitation has grown to approximately 5 million, and the Museumís exhibitions and Space Shows are seen by millions more in venues on six continents. The Museumís website, mobile apps, and massive open online courses (MOOCs) extend its scientific research and collections, exhibitions, and educational programs to additional audiences around the globe.
