During the Astronaut Encounter, veteran astronauts give a live presentation and hold a question and answer session about what it’s like to live and work in space.

The Astronaut of the Day is also available for autographs.

Visitors can also purchase a Chat With an Astronaut, where they take part in a group conversation with food and drinks provided.

The first Astronaut of the Day will be Don Thomas, who served as a mission specialist on four space shuttle flights in the 90s and is currently a physics professor at Towson University.
