Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum


All Ages


Event description:

Local astronomers will be on hand with their high-powered telescopes to help visitors navigate the night sky and answer questions about astronomy and star-gazing. Guests are welcome to bring their own binoculars or look through the telescopes of the experts. T

Using music synthesis software, we can listen to scientific data just as easily as we can look at charts and graphs. By immersing ourselves in sound, we can appreciate the mysteries of science in new ways. Can we understand our place in the universe by listening to music created from outer space data? Can we learn about hurricanes by making music based on how storms spin, grow and move? Hear from music technology professor Mark Ballora and experience science in a new way—by listening to it.

The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum is dedicated to the exhibition and interpretation of history, science, and service as related to its home aboard the aircraft carrier Intrepid, a National Historic Landmark. As you explore the Museum you will be able to examine original artifacts, view historic video footage, and explore interactive exhibits.

Launched in 1943, the former aircraft carrier USS Intrepid fought in World War II, surviving five kamikaze attacks and one torpedo strike. The ship later served in the Cold War and the Vietnam War. Intrepid also served as a NASA recovery vessel in the 1960s. It was decommissioned in 1974, and today is berthed on the Hudson River as the centerpiece of the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum.
