NYC VIBE at the 2019 Explorers Club Annual Dinner

(Original air date 4/4/19)

At the Explorers Club awards night in Midtown Manhattan, it was an historic gathering of astronauts and scientists celebrating the Apollo 11 mission 50th anniversary and more.

The event commemorated the past accomplishments while pointing towards the future of exploration and discovery through technology and teamwork.

NYC VIBE met with these pioneers to talk about where we’ve been, where we’re going, and how we are going to get there!

The Gala also honored the Hong Kong chapter of the Explorers Club with a citation of special merit. The award recognized the scientific breakthrough of an expedition to the Gobi desert supported by INFINITI Motor Company in 2018 that, for the first time, applied NASA imaging technology to improve the science of finding dinosaur fossils.

The expedition, dubbed The Roy Chapman Andrews Centennial Expedition, was organized by the Club’s Hong Kong Chapter and was awarded the Club’s prestigious Citation of Merit in recognition of an outstanding feat of exploration. The expedition yielded historic results, including the discovery of many important fossils and new fossil locations, as well as potentially three or more new species of dinosaur.

Roy Chapman Andrews famously found dinosaur eggs at the Flaming Cliffs in the Gobi approximately 100 years ago and was the first explorer to use “motor cars” to vastly increase the efficiency of the expedition.

A century later, INFINITI provided a fleet of state-of-the-art luxury SUVs and underwriting to support the expedition, reinforcing the ethos of using new technology to empower exploration.
