ITB & Envisioning Space Tourism
7 Sept 2017, Caveat NYC
The Intergalactic Travel Bureau lands in New York City’s newest venue, CAVEAT, to showcase 6 years of merging the latest space science research w/ arts, storytelling, & design. Its mission is to bring the wonders of space to everyone by weaving science into an immersive pop-up travel agency, a cabaret, VR, and more.
Join Jana Grcevich and Olivia Koski, co-authors of the Vacation Guide to the Solar System, for a relaxing evening imaging yourself in space. Touch the rocky plains of a 3D printed Mars, gaze up at a view of the Earth from a virtual Apollo 11 landing site, and take your picture on an alien world! The authors will show off the technology, performance art, and design behind the Intergalactic Travel Bureau, an immersive pop-up experience from Guerilla Science that has connected thousands of people with the wonders of the universe.
