Above and Beyond: NASA’s Journey to Tomorrow
  • Date: Thursday, October 11, 2018
  • Time: 7:00 pm
  • Location: William G. McGowan Theater, Washington, DC

As NASA celebrates its 60th anniversary, this new documentary from Discovery presents a moving portrait of the agency’s many accomplishments in space: taking us to the Moon, to the surface of Mars, to the outer edge of our solar system, and beyond. Above and Beyond also sheds light on the vital role NASA has played in measuring the health of our planet. Directed, produced, and narrated by Academy Award–nominated and Emmy-winning Rory Kennedy (Last Days of Vietnam). Dr. Paul A. Newman, Chief Scientist for Earth Sciences at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center, will introduce the screening.

All public programs at the National Archives are free and streamed live online via the National Archives’ YouTube channel. Reservations are recommended; seating is on a first-come, first-served basis. The doors to the building will open 45 minutes prior to the start of the program.
