This sounds like the most awesome event ever. It’s a science festival held on the annivaersary of Yuri Gagarin becoming the first human in outer space.
Held at NASA’s Ames Research Center, this event is a mix of science center, art show and music festival. The musical lineup is sizable, including include gamer-geek superheroes Freezepop, and most awesomely of all, Ninja Tune’s own Amon Tobin. On display will be all manner of cool mechanical gear – from NASA’s scientific explorers to antant-garde tech art. Talks will be given by NASA scientists and video game designers. It’s a veritable geek heaven. Heck, there’s even going to be an aerobatics show by Yuri Gagarin-era aircraft.
That’s just the tip of the iceberg, though. Visit the website to see what kind of pants-wetting good time those of us not fortunate enough to live in San Fransisco are missing.
If only Transporters were one of the things William Shatner had brought to the world. But, lacking such amazing travel options, I’m afraid I’ll have to hope another recon wing can make a flyby of this event.
