Special Guests

Samantha Cristoforetti is an ESA Astronaut and the 1st Italian Woman in Space. She returned from a 6-month stay on the International Space Station in June of 2015 and we are quite excited to host her at Yuri's Night L.A. 2016 and help welcome her back to Earth! You can also watch the video greeting she sent us from space last Yuri's Night below. Don't miss this amazing opportunity to meet Samantha and hear her inspiring, out-of-this-world stories.

Also joining us will be Tim Russ (Commander Tuvok “Star Trek: Voyager”), Patricia Tallman (Lyta Alexander from “Babylon 5”), Dean Haglund (one of the Lone Gunman from “The X-Files”), Brian Brophy (Commander Maddox, "Star Trek: Next Generation") and JPL's Mohawk Guy, Bobak Ferdowsi. We will also be premiering the latest version of Miguel Angel Argon Calvo's dive through 200,000 galaxies as we 'fly' out from Earth to the farthest reaches of the Universe exploring one small patch of sky from the COSMOS astronomical survey. (I saw it at LACMA and was stunned by it) as well as the Dalek robot from Dr. Who and the R2-D2 unit from 'Artoo in Love'. We have something for everyone!


Interactive

JPL personnel will be on hand to discuss the accomplishments of the Shuttle Radar Topography Mission which flew aboard the shuttle Endeavour and acquired the most complete topographical map of the Earth (now used for a wide variety of applications and present in some form in every mobile device). Sample hardware (cabling, spacecraft model, etc.) will be present. JPL personnel will also be present to discuss the progress of the Mars Rover Curiosity. A scale model, spacecraft wheel, and stickers to give away, as well as some other items, will be present.

ISS Above will be there showing you how to build your own wearable ISS flyover reminder. Sci-Fest L.A. will be promoting their May festival and offering pictures with their celebs (who are also featured in this year's shows). Vortex Media is bringing their interactive floor projection and projecting on the Shuttle itself! The Rebel Legion and 501st will be on hand to give that authentic Star Wars galaxy feel to our "New Hope" Celebration, and the Wizards of Mars are bringing their 6 ft LED lit, acrylic disk of the Voyager Golden Record that is the centerpiece of their Black Rock City Observatory Entrance and a number of other cool folks are joining every day! It will be EPIC!

 

Music

Dance under the Space Shuttle Endeavor! There will be music all night from some of the hottest DJ's in the solar system. DJ Eva and DJ Wade will be bringing you sick space beats until midnight.

 

 

 

Space Ambassadors
