The Astronaut’s Table

Masterfully Integrating Science & Technology with Art & Entertainment

This spring the Virginia Air & Space Center will be celebrating our 25th Anniversary. To celebrate this milestone, the Center will hold a business/cocktail attire event, The Astronaut's Table, on April 22, 2017. The Astronaut’s Table will celebrate the Center’s 25 years and reflect on the impact and partnership the Virginia Air & Space Center has had with Hampton Roads and beyond.

The Astronaut’s Table will be a unique event that will masterfully integrate Science and Technology with Art and Entertainment through exciting science demonstrations, dynamic musical groups, and presentations of the latest technologies to showcase where the Virginia Air & Space Center is going in the next 25 years. The Astronaut’s Table will take the “farm to table” concept to the next level for an out of this world experience.

The evening will begin with a cocktail hour before spreading throughout the center for a culinary tour of local restaurants. Guests will have an opportunity to explore and mingle with non-traditional seating available as entertainment emerges from the crowd throughout the evening. Special exclusive opportunities are available for attendees looking to elevate the evening experience, through reserved table seating, complimentary wine  and more. 

Special Guest: Walt Cunningham, Lunar Module Pilot for the Apollo 7 mission
