Slovaks in Space

It was an honour to share the stage with Dr. Michaela Musilova at the Permanent Mission of the Slovak Republic to the United Nations on October 28, 2022, to talk about the importance of space. This open discussion included a presentation of the Slovak flag taken to suborbital space on NS-22 and was sponsored by S-ACC and Zivena.

The event was a unique opportunity to meet two remarkable women of Slovakian descent who are connected through their love of space and Slovakia. These accomplished scientists and explorers discussed their life journeys and described pivotal moments leading them to climb summits, explore Mars, and fly to space. Their riveting stories inspired the audience to keep dreaming and reaching for the stars! The audience included not only members of S-ACC and Zivena, but also the next generation of adventurers— children from the Slovak school in Astoria.

Below are some photographs from the evening:
