Space Explorers Club

Take your space enthusiasm to the limit with our new membership club.


Overview

Engage in a virtual space with both legendary and current leaders in the aerospace industry. To kick off the 2023 membership program, former NASA Administrator and Undersecretary of Defense, Michael Griffin, will discuss the vision of enabling a future where millions of people are living and working in space for the benefit of Earth.

In the following months, we’ll hear from female astronauts Nicole Stott, Barbara Morgan, and Kathy Sullivan as we celebrate the 60th Anniversary of Women in Space; veteran astronauts Scott Kelly and Tony Antonelli; and many more industry professionals about their journeys and the future of space travel. As a bonus session this year we will celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the First African American in Space with Guion Bluford as he discusses space journey and holds a Q&A session following his presentation.

This annual 12-month virtual membership club is limited to only 35 participants.

“This experience is completely out of my comfort zone with some of the most brilliant minds and most down to earth people on the planet. I am not naturally proficient in STEM, but I am innately curious to learn about things I do not understand. The topics presented every month are random and of the presenter’s choosing. I am surprised of the comfortable environment, and I am never intimidated to ask a question to each speaker. I love all the new knowledge and the grander perspective. I feel fortunate to learn the intimate stories not told elsewhere in books or conferences. Most importantly, I treasure the connections I have made with new friends I might never have met. Thank you ASF for bringing us so up close to the past, present and future of space and beyond!”
