Space in Your Face!
is an educational event where scientists discuss various topics of space science in comical and entertaining ways. This project was started in February 2013 by astrobiologist Julia DeMarines in Denver, Colorado. Julia is a research associate at the University of California, Berkeley SETI Research Center and the public outreach coordinator at Blue Marble Space not-for-profit organization. Since its inception Space in Your Face! has now expanded and has been held in Colorado, California, Washington, and Washington DC. and boasts over 50 live events.
The objective of Space in Your Face! is to communicate space-science in entertaining and easy to digest ways often incorporating both experts and local artists to cater to the widest range of learners as possible. Our events feature hilarious skits such as “Sarcastic Earth” and “Getting to know Uranus”, and space raps and cover songs. We end each event with a quiz with PRIZES!
Coming soon to a computer near you on Tuesdays! Space in Your Face! for kiddos! Please fill out the google form to stay informed! This is in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Times are tough and we could all use a Uranus joke here and there.
