Not Necessarily Rocket Science

This virtual offering will stream live from the Museum of Science for registrants to enjoy at home. Registrants will receive links to view this program via email within 24 hours of the event start time.

Kellie Gerardi’s non-traditional path in the space industry shows us that humanity’s next giant leap will require the contributions of artists, engineers, and everyone in between. Gerardi takes us on a tour of this unique window in history and offers an inside look into the commercial spaceflight industry and all those working to democratize access to space and tee up a golden age of spaceflight for scientists, students, and tourists alike!

Whether you have a space background or are just looking to learn about the exciting future that awaits us, Not Necessarily Rocket Science confirms that there’s a place for anyone who is passionate about space exploration. From her adventures working at a spaceport, training for Mars at an analog facility, testing spacesuits in microgravity, and building a massive science communication platform, Gerardi’s unique handbook provides inspiration and guidance for aspiring astronauts of all backgrounds to make the most out of life in the Space Age.

Join us for a virtual evening celebrating the release of Not Necessarily Rocket Science and a conversation with the author about the future of the space industry and the role we all can, and should, have in shaping it.
