Jim Lovell is a recipient of the Congressional Space Medal of Honor and the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

*EXPLORATION SPACE

We’ll take you to visit the moon and planets in our solar system,
explore the Milky Way galaxy, and learn about the universe and space travel!

Your sponsorship of the 2017 Gala will support our new Exploration Space Initiative, a multi-faceted expansion of our acclaimed STEM educational programming.

Exploration Space was launched October 2016 with the debut of our new digital planetarium, “SPOC” (Space Portal Odyssey Capsule), which offers an immersive and engaging learning experience for onsite and outreach educational programming.

Plans are underway to create new interactive learning stations and displays in an extensively-upgraded Space Gallery which will be anchored by the Apollo VII Command Module and supported by an educational video series focusing on past, present, and future space exploration.
