Join experts from NASA Ames Research Center in Mountain View for fascinating talks on exoplanets and life beyond Earth - including what it might look like to live on Mars: 

  • Ed Bendek and Rus Belikov will talk about the future of exploration - and possible travel to! - our closest star system, Alpha Centauri.
  • A planetary scientist at Ames, Dr. Carol Stoker specializes in the search for life in extreme environments, including the robotic exploration of Mars.

Learn about the work of METI (Messaging Extraterrestrial Intelligence) and their search for life beyond Earth with interstellar communications and messaging.

Explore space virtually with the experiential art shows of Dream Logic VR.

Launch your spaceship (aka ball) into the starfield (aka playfield) with a set of intergalactic pinball machines from the Pacific Pinball Museum.

Near the Project Lab, learn about some of the most intriguing space-related Kickstarter projects, including plans to launch student projects into space and a design for a sustainable city on Mars.
