Bridge of Spies and Meet Francis Gary Powers, Jr. - November 22

One of the most talked-about events of the Cold War was the downing of the American U-2 spy plane piloted by Francis Gary Powers over the Soviet Union on May 1, 1960. The event was depicted in the Steven Spielberg movie Bridge of Spies, showing how Powers was captured by the KGB, subjected to a televised show trial, and imprisoned, all of which created an international incident. Join the National Museum of Nuclear Science and History to meet with Francis Gary Powers, Jr., author of the book "Spy Pilot" and son of the U-2 spy pilot to view a special showing of Bridge of Spies at the museum.
