Based on a recent press release issued by the administration, NASA astronauts will host a show at the New England Aquarium. The event is meant to introduce the lay public to some of the missions and experiments that the National Aeronautics and Space Administration is carrying out for the unravelling of the mysteries of space.
NASA is aware that their missions have to be promoted in order to get the public’s support; therefore the Administration will host an event at the New England Aquarium this Thursday. The show will see the presentation of some of the most renowned astronauts of NASA, who will test their space gear during live performances.
The show will open with Sunita Williams’ presentation, the female astronaut who has become popular due to her record of space walks. She will first dive into the Giant Ocean Tank at the New England Aquarium to briefly showcase the tests that experts at NASA conduct underwater.
Sunita’s moment will be followed by Sue Curley’ comparison of general diving suits and space gear. She will begin the live presentation at 2 p.m. with the sole intent of emphasizing possible similarities and differences between the two systems.
The event aims to show people that most missions conducted on the International Space Station rely on underwater experiments. NASA astronauts have particularly chosen this place because the underwater world bears many similarities with space.
Scientists are currently interested in diminishing communication delays, which is why they are testing various technologies for the ISS. They are paying particular attention to virtual reality as these systems are said to render communication between ground operators and astronomers a lot faster.
The educational campaign that NASA is now making, was designed mainly for the younger categories of the society as they could be the first to live on Mars or other space planets.
For that matter, the administration is also organizing a mobile exhibition outside the Aquarium where visitors will be able to travel both in time and space. The exhibition will showcase some of the most important missions that NASA has conducted since the founding of the ISS.
Access to this Thursday’s show will be made between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. Visitors won’t have to pay any tickets to get inside the presentation.
