Grades 5 - Adult. Space travels and battles play an exciting role in science fiction films and stories, but could they happen in our reality? NASA Solar System Ambassador Dustin Wessel will separate space science fact from fiction and tell how science fiction has influenced space technology development.
Dustin Wessel is a young professional who has always had a passion for space. Growing up in Mars (Pennsylvania), he always seemed destined to reach for the stars. What he didn’t realize at the time was that he would be working with different types of stars in his professional career. When he’s not working behind the scenes of the glitz and glamour of the entertainment industry, Dustin finds himself traveling and exploring, always with an eye on the sky.
He currently lives in Orlando, Florida and frequents the Kennedy Space Center, attending as many launches as possible.
