NASA knows its future is somewhere at San Diego Comic-Con
When you think of San Diego Comic-Con, you’re probably more like to think of Star Trek’s USS Enterprise than NASA’s Apollo 11, but all of that might be about to change. This year NASA held its first Comic-Con panel just in time for the 45th anniversary of the moon landing. The panel, titled “NASA”s Next Giant Leap,” featured astronaut and second man to walk on the moon Buzz Aldrin, NASA planetary division director Jim Green, astronaut Mike Fincke, and jet propulsion laboratory systems engineer Bobak Ferdowsi as panelists.
The event filled a room with more than 1,000 people and left many more who had lined up unable to enter, clearly showing the enthusiasm at the convention for NASA’s presence. But why host a panel at Comic-Con at all?
