One Giant Schlep for Fankind

You know us. We gotta snark that SpaceFest 2007 features not only autograph opportunities with Apollo/Gemini astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Scott Carpenter, but also a meet-and-greet with Richard Hatch (not the winner of the first season of Survivor) from Battlestar Galactica (not a real spaceship). That’s right, Richard freaking Hatch. Yay!

The cosmic convention will also feature an appearance by ASU’s School of Earth and Space Exploration, heavy-duty lectures, art, merch, and screenings that warrant sincere jaw-dropping.

Saturday's astronaut-and-celebrity-packed banquet is sold out. To join a waiting list, call 800-727-6682.
