Link Observatory
Sharing the wonders of the universe in ways that inspire, excite, challenge and educate.

Our mission is to advance scholastic literacy of future generations with informal STEM education focused on NASA missions, astronomy, and space exploration; and to foster scientific curiosity and advance science literacy to cultivate and nurture the next generation of leaders.

“The biggest risk to the future of space exploration is the lack of STEM education” -Dr. John Grunsfeld at 2015 Astronaut Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony.

The Stroy of America's Astronauts Past, Present and Future

It was a breath-taking moment in American history and a truly magnificent adventure story. The Space Race between the United Sates and the Soviet Union started as a product of the Cold War, and ended as one of the greatest achievements in human history. The astronauts were military test pilots handpicked by the newly formed NASA to be the first Americans launched into space, and ultimately the first humans to land on the Moon. Test pilots are people who live fast lives with dangerous machines and these brave men committed to take us into the unknown on incredibly powerful, newly developed rockets that captured the imagination of the entire world.

It has been said that this era in human history will be remembered by future generations as that moment in time when we landed on the Moon.

Join us for this media-rich event as we tell the story of adventure and heroism and what our then president John F. Kennedy famously stated as “the most hazardous and dangerous and greatest adventures on which mankind has ever embarked."

Explore the Wonders of the Universe through the Link Observatory Telescope
Weather permitting, we will be visiting the Link Observatory immediately following the program.


Link is a global community, welcoming people from every discipline and culture who seek a deeper understanding of our place in the universe.

We believe passionately in the power of inspiration and understanding of STEM disciplines (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) to change attitudes, lives and ultimately, the world. Since its beginning in 2012, hundreds of award winning LinkLive public events have been enjoyed by sell-out crowds throughout the Midwest. 

LinkLive is an audio/visual spectacle utilizing a variety of guest speakers, and the very latest in theater screen digital imagery, animations, music and multimedia technology. LinkLive events create an engaging and thought-provoking environment as we share the wonders of the universe in ways that inspire, excite, challenge and educate.
