Intergalactic, Planetary

See the future of space exploration from the safety of earth



MCA may be gone, but that doesn't mean we can't still go intergalactic.

If you ever wanted to be an astronaut, now's the chance to live your dream and rub elbows with the industry leaders at Spacecraft Technology Expo, a three-day summit on the future of space exploration.

And it's all free.

Mingle with government-sponsored space agencies, aeronautic designers and engineers, and satellite operators as you learn the nuts and bolts of space travel.

Exhibitors include Boeing and the California Science Center, but we're looking forward to panels on the future spacecraft technology and robotic space exploration, plus a session called "The View from Our Place in Space" from Bill Nye the Science Guy.

But the real star of the Expo is the Human Spaceflight Park, an interactive platform with more than 4,000 square feet of knowledge, direct from people working to get you off the planet and into orbit.

It's like a gathering of travel agents, only instead of Maui or the Poconos, these people are selling you vacations in outer space.

And if you happen to have an extra $200,000 lying around, Virgin Galactic can help send you into the cosmos right away.

Just don't bring your smartphone — all those roaming charges are astronomical.
