Star Trek: Where Science Meets ImaginationJun 02, 2023 11:00 AM Universe Theater
Attention Star Trek fans! Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex is hosting some Star Trek and NASA VIPs for a special panel entitled “How Science Fiction Has Impacted Space Exploration and Policy” at 11:00 AM on Friday, June 2. Science fiction has inspired real space exploration projects including the launch of SpaceX CRS-28, which will carry innovative solar array technology (iROSA) science experiments and supplies to the International Space Station. Shows like Star Trek have also influenced and inspired many scientists, engineers, and other professionals at NASA to join the space field. This panel combines those who are imagining the future with those that are actively building it, exploring synergies between the two. Join us, and prepare to boldly with a unique panel discussion that combines science and storytelling!
