Surprisingly, Jews have had a significant role in “Space Ethics.” Space travel challenges us with unique situations that evoke unique ethical and bioethical issues. Dr. Wolpe, for the last fifteen years the Senior Bioethics Advisor to NASA, tells stories of being a Jew at NASA and explores some of the challenging ethical issues of long duration space flight to explore our solar system.

Featuring a gourmet Kosher-by-candlelight dinner.
