From Concorde to Mars: Designing the Future
Due to the coronavirus, please call to ensure this event is still happening before you leave home.
The breath-taking vision. The design. The experience. The thrill. Concorde, one of the “great design icons of the modern age,” was all of that. In 1969, we put a man on the Moon and launched a supersonic passenger plane. The future as imagined in science fiction had arrived. We revisit the wonder of Concorde and explore it as inspiration for our “new space age." With missions back to the Moon and beyond, we will see new technologies and innovations that cater to the needs of both astronauts and tourists.
Lawrence Azerrad, author of Supersonic: The Design & Lifestyle of Concorde, Tibor Balint, principal human centered designer at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and Jeffrey Montes, a space architect at Space Factory, will discuss the new imagined future and the realities we can expect to see in the coming years.
Supersonic: The Design & Lifestyle of Concorde will be available for purchase and signing during the program.
Venue: Intrepid Sea, Air, & Space Museum
