A three-part evening celebrating our love affair with the galaxy. First, encounter Moonwalk, an experimental film designed specifically for full-dome planetariums. The rough cut received the IBM Innovation Prize at the 2007 Boston Cyberarts Festival—now we premiere the finished film in the new Planetarium. Next, journey farther out through a cosmic story slam: What will galactic life be like in the future? What does an alien abduction feel like? Why is gazing at the stars so alluring? Record your real-life or science fiction story and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org for a chance to tell the tale in-person to the audience around you and outer space overhead. The evening wraps up with a cosmic cocktail reception, where you can show off your inspired space-wear or high-tech fashions.
Audience favorites will be awarded.
