Only at MOSI, join astronaut Nicole Stott — the first person to paint a work of art in space — for an inside look at women as explorers and artists in space.
Hear first-hand stories of life in space, meet a pioneering explorer, and even create a painting alongside the world-famous “Artistic Astronaut” during NASA Legends: Women in Space, a one-of-a-kind event at the Museum of Science & Industry on Saturday, June 3 at 2 p.m.
NASA Legend Nicole Stott will share stories of her inspiring path to space, her own life in orbit, and the pioneering role of women in space during a talk inside MOSI’s dramatic Florida Hospital IMAX® DOME Theatre.
Her talk will include a special presentation of the breathtaking IMAX® film A Beautiful Planet, shot by NASA astronauts on the International Space Station.
Hear how Stott earned her nickname, the Artistic Astronaut, 220 miles above the earth; using a small watercolor kit she had crammed into her launch supplies, she created the first painting ever made in space, a blue-green vision of the planet below—while carefully keeping floating water from damaging the $100 billion space station.
