The goal of "Space Place Live!" is to introduce kids to the human, down-to-Earth side of real scientists and engineers working in the space program. Each guest is presented as a passionate and accomplished role model for every child interested in science or engineering. Kids will hear about how Dr. Martin has taken his love of map-making and exploration and uses it to map out and explore the birth of galaxies.This program was first broadcast on NASA TV Education File Schedule November 1, 2004.
