Meet Astronaut Leland Melvin

EVENTS 2019

“DEstination: Space” Events

How has Delaware contributed to space exploration?
How will space exploration and advanced technology impact the future?
How do the humanities link in to this conversation?

Join Delaware Humanities as we answer these questions and more through a traveling exhibit, special guest speakers, hosted lecture events, film screenings, discussions, and more.

“DEstination: Space” promises to be a fun and educational experience.

You can even meet an Astronaut!
