For Immediate Release
February 2, 2017

Taking Up Space, a program sending Pascua Yaqui Tribe of Arizona girls to Space Camp, cordially invite you to enjoy an evening of scintillating conversation about life, the universe, and everything! Mingle with Tucson area planetary scientists, astronomers, and space artists over cocktails. There will be physics demonstrations, telescope viewing, displays of space art, a pair of free tickets up for grabs, and merchandise for sale of the New Orleans funk band Galactic, who will be performing that night at the adjacent Rialto Theatre following the party. So, break out your favorite space-themed outfit, put on your thinking (or drinking) caps, and join us! Excelsior!

Taking Up Space is a subsidiary project of the Tucson based non-profit organization, Time in Cosmology, whose mission is to fund the cost of sending girls from area Native American tribes to Space Camp®, in hopes of inspiring them to pursue STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) oriented educational and career paths. Space Camp was founded in Huntsville, Alabama in 1982 as the U.S. Space & Rocket Center® museum’s education program to promote the study of math, science, and technology. Trainees experience astronaut simulators, take command of a mission to the International Space Station and develop leadership and teamwork skills.
