For all you Silicon Valley-ites looking to get out of your rut and meet some new cool people, the SETI Institute (the experts who worry about how we'll talk to aliens) is throwing a fun fundraiser: “Spaceball – An Out of this World Gala!” It's part of Silicon Valley Comic Con 2017.
Some of the fancy stuff they'll have at SpaceBall:
- Oculus VR experience
- Ninkasi Brewing Company, who will be pouring their Ground Control beer - their yeast has actually been to space!
- Discovery Dome Planetarium
- cocktail hour with live Theremin music by Project: Pimento, “Ignite Space” mini-talks by SETI Institute scientists,
- a cocktail buffet,
- a live auction
Tickets: $150/ea (but you can pay more if you want to help sponsor)
