SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, May 6, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ — On May 3, 2024, Smithsonian Affiliated Aquarium of the Bay hosted legendary Apollo 16 American Astronaut Brigadier General USAF (retd.) Charles Duke and his wife Dorothy along with 59 CEOs and executives from the Berkeley Innovation Forum Dr. Solomon Darwin. President & CEO of the Aquarium and Bay Ecotarium Dr. George Jacob, welcomed the guests and hared his vision for the historic legacy transformation of the 29 year old facility into the world’s first living climate literacy museum. He also shared the growing ecosystem of similar facilities being planned in other parts of the world. “Ocean offers a similar voyage of discovery akin to space exploration. Discover of a piece of earth inside a moon rock that I brought back to earth from the lunar scape, gives insights into the complexity of the universe we live in”, remarked Astronaut Duke.
