Space exploration crash course meets 90's Nickelodeon game show
Join hosts Corinne Caputo (author of How To Success) and Loren Grush (Space Reporter at The Verge) as they put REAL scientists and REAL comedians through the rigorous tests of Astronaut Training to see who will “win” a “trip to Mars.” Our challenges simulate those actually done by astronauts-in-training, as if they were made by a gazillionaire with too much time on their hands. Only one flight crew can emerge: come witness who will become the next great American heroes!
Doors 6:30pm / Show 7:00pm
Tickets: $10 adv / $12 door
