Jews in Space: Journeys Through Life Years and Light Years

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

I am a former Refusenik from Leningrad (St. Petersburg), Russia, and a space scientist. Jews in Space will be a story of my own personal journey as well as the challenge of preserving our treasured Jewish identity and values within the avalanche of technological progress and over the huge distances and limitless frontiers of outer space.
