Space Explorers Club

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


Overview

Engage in a virtual space with both legendary and current leaders in the aerospace industry. To kick off the 2024 membership program, veteran astronaut Scott Parazynski will be talking about his space endeavors along with the future of commercial space.

In the following months, we’ll hear from veteran astronauts Jan Davis, Rick Mastracchio, Rex Walheim, Doug Hurley, Bob Cabana, and Rusty Schweikart along with many more industry professionals about their journeys and the future of space travel.

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

"It was so gratifying taking part in the Space Explorers Club, especially hearing first-hand accounts from pioneering female astronauts like Kathy Sullivan, Barbara Morgan, and Nicole Stott as America celebrated the 60th Anniversary of Women in Space. What I loved most were the down-to-earth, human stories shared by these ever-curious astronauts as they spoke about the profound impact that exploring space had on them. As we look toward returning to the moon and beyond, it’s astronauts, engineers, and scientists like these who are inspiring our current generations, including my own daughter, to reach for the stars!"

- Katherine Ruppe, Screenwriter & Space Enthusiast
