Come to the American Museum of Natural History (Central Park West at 79th) on Wednesday for another edition of SciCafe, the casual evening of cocktails emceed by experts on cutting-edge science topics. The fascinating topic this week is “The Next 50 Years of Space Flight.” To help celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Frederick Phineas and Sandra Priest Rose Center for Earth and Space, join Museum Curator Mike Shara of the Department of Astrophysics as he leaps 10, 20, and 50 years into the future of space travel. Discover a world where suborbital tourism is a popular holiday option, a research colony exists on the Moon, we’ve surveyed (possibly even docked with) an asteroid, and ships have landed on the moons of Mars in preparation for an actual Mars landing. The event is free and open to all over 21, with a cash bar available.
