Future In-Space Hangout on Thursday, October 20, 2016 at 3:00 pm EDT

While the world’s space agencies extend humanity’s reach into space with science satellites of all kinds, generations of scientists have carried out cutting-edge research from high in the Earth’s atmosphere using balloons with remarkable capabilities and innovative designs to take advantage of the special advantages of high-altitude ballooning. It’s program of discoveries is just beginning!

Join Tony Darnell, Alberto Conti, and Harley Thronson as they discuss with Stephen Rinehart (NASA Goddard) and Christopher Walker (University of Arizona) the challenges and excitement of research ballooning.

This series of Hangouts are in affiliation with the American Astronomical Society and the American Astronautical Society.

The best place to hangout with us will be on YouTube, broadcast on the Deep Astronomy Channel.
