    The National Air and Space Museum will host a press preview for “Time and Navigation: the untold story of getting from here to there” April 10. For centuries, nations have invested enormous resources to determine time and place for geopolitical reasons, and their research has changed people’s view of the world. Advanced technology that was once available only to the military has become commonplace in car dashboards, cell phones and a growing number of other portable devices of daily life. Time and Navigationexplores how revolutions in timekeeping over three centuries have influenced how people find their way. It is organized into five sections: Navigating at Sea; Navigating in the Air; Navigating in Space; Inventing Satellite Navigation; and Navigation for Everyone. 

    This project is a collaboration between two of the Smithsonian’s most popular museums: the National Air and Space Museum and the National Museum of American History. The exhibition opens to the public April 12.

    For the first time the museum is inviting social media users to apply for credentials to attend an exhibition’s press preview. Ten social media users will be selected and will be given the same access as news media. The deadline to register is March 31. The hashtag for social media is #TimeNav.

    Media must RSVP to larai{at}si.edu or mitchellAC{at}si.edu
