  1. Hampton Carousel

    June 1, 2021, 11:00 AM - December 31, 2021, 8:00 PM @ Carousel Park & Hampton Carousel

    After being closed for over a year due to the pandemic, the Hampton Carousel opens for the 2021 season on June 1 with COVID protocols. Located in Carousel Park and operated by the Hampton History Museum, the former Buckroe Beach carousel is one of the City of Hampton’s most treasured historic assets. Built in 1920, the carousel is completely restored to its original beauty and housed in its own weather-protected pavilion at Carousel Park on the city’s downtown waterfront. It is one of only 170 antique wooden merry-go-rounds still existing in the U.S. Hand crafted by the Philadelphia Toboggan Company for the Buckroe Beach Amusement Park, Hampton's Carousel is a whirling tribute to the skill of its creators. The Hampton Carousel will operate under federal, state and City of Hampton COVID-19 protocols. Guests will be required to wear masks when inside the carousel building, practice social distancing, and use hand-sanitizer before and after rides.

  10. Sigma Series -- The Gut Microbiome: Implications for Health on Earth and in Space

    September 21, 2021, 7:30 PM - 8:30 PM @

    Streaming online through NASA Langley

    Each human hosts a microbiome in their gut that is home to more than 1,000 species of bacteria, archaea, viruses, and eukaryotic microbes. These gut microorganisms are highly involved in numerous metabolic reactions that influence normal host physiology and metabolism. Additionally, an enormous portion of the body’s immune function is positioned in the human gut. This means that the bacteria living in your gastrointestinal tract play numerous roles in maintaining your health. Specifically, the health of your gut can influence your risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer, and the development of neurodegenerative diseases, such as dementia. This week's speaker, Amina Zeidan, Ph.D., is a research fellow with NASA Langley’s Space Radiation Risk Research Group. As a translational scientist, she conducts research on the human gut microbiome and gut responses to infectious diseases, environmental exposures, and stressful environments, such as those experienced by astronauts.
