From Dream to Discovery

By GEHMS Planetarium (other events)

2 Dates Through May 17, 2018

Immerse your audiences in the adventure and extremes of spacecraft engineering in From Dream To Discovery: Inside NASA.  This fascinating 30-minute show about space engineering begins with an exploration of the Hubble Space Telescope, with its many intricate parts that must work together to help this observatory achieve great things.

From there, we explore the James Webb Space Telescope, currently under construction and testing at NASA.

Finally, the show explores the New Horizons mission to Pluto, revealing the engineering challenges the mission has faced in its 10-year headlong rush to a distant and fascinating world.

How do engineers plan for the extreme environments a spacecraft must endure? Where do they test their work?

To answer those questions, From Dream To Discovery: Inside NASA takes us to NASA Goddard Space Flight Center's Integration and Testing facility, where space missions get tested. It shows how, from design to creation to launch, engineering is an exciting and fundamental process in space exploration. Finally, we witness a launch, the next step for a mission as it leaps up through Earth's gravity well. 

From Dream To Discovery: Inside NASA is a fascinating look at how humans take the impossible and make it reality. It's a great way to introduce your audiences to the "right stuff" it takes to explore space.
