This program is made possible through the generous support of the Gertrude E. Skelly Charitable Foundation. See more STEM in 30: airandspace.si.edu/stemin30

Since the first humans launched into space in 1961, there have been questions about how the human body would react to being beyond Earth’s atmosphere. While most of the basic questions have been answered, many remain, and are the basis for continued research on the International Space Station. Finding answers to these questions is an important step toward sending humans to Mars. Join STEM in 30 as we explore this research and the impact of long-term space travel on the human body. This...

Balloons have a long and colorful history. After all, the first hot-air balloon passengers were a sheep, duck, and a rooster who flew from France in 1783. Since then, balloons have been a mode of transportation, a military asset, and a source of entertainment for many. Join STEM in 30 as we explore the Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta and bring you the history of balloons, the science behind hot-air and gas balloons, and the pageantry of the Fiesta.
