Weekly Space Hangout

Oct 9, 2021

After a slightly longer than expected hiatus (Fraser's moving chaos) THE WSH IS BACK!!!

We are excited to welcome Joshua Stoff from the Cradle of Aviation Museum to the first WSH of the new season.

Joshua is the longtime Curator of the Cradle of Aviation Museum, a major Air & Space museum on Long Island, in the greater New York area. He has been curator there since 1982 and has entirely developed the collection and the exhibits for them.

The museum focuses on the history of aviation and spaceflight as it relates to Long Island, covering its contributions, manufacturers, events, and personalities. Thus they have assembled a collection of 75 aircraft and spacecraft, most of them locally produced.

Josh is also the author of 20 books on aviation & space history, including two on the Grumman Lunar Module program. He has made numerous appearances on TV on the History, Science, & Discovery channels, as well as on others, as an "Aerospace Historian." He is also pleased to appear on the Weekly Space Hangout!
