In the history of U.S. space milestones, July has often been a busy month, 2011 included. With the touchdown of the Atlantis last week, NASA marked the last flight of the U.S. Space Shuttle program. July of 1969 saw the launch and safe return of human beings from Earth to the Moon. And this weekend, you can celebrate the 40th anniversary of the first “drive” on the moon.
For The Bare Square, celebration means sharing art, and what better way to celebrate these exo-atmospheric accomplishments than with the NASA Space Art program. Below, NASA curator Bert Ullrich takes you through highlights of NASA’s traveling, 70+ exhibit now staged at the Smithsonian Air & Space Museum in Washington, D.C. now through October 9, 2011.
If you don’t think you can make it to DC, watch the video and enjoy these piece from the exhibit.
