Event description

Description

Space Rocks is a celebration of space exploration and the art, music, and culture it inspires. Presented in association with ESA, the European Space Agency, it is a unique gathering of the best and brightest in every scientific and creative field but united by a common passion for the Universe beyond our world.

Our pilot event consists of three sessions and covers a broad range of space enthusiasts, from devoted superfans to the sci-curious. Space Academy, our first session, is aimed at kids of all ages and will highlight the incredible range of space science currently underway. Session 2, Science Fiction vs. Space Fact, will look at popular portrayals of space and space exploration and see how they stack up next to the work being done every day. Session 3 is our live gig, and will feature visionary music inspired by humankind’s fascination with the great beyond.
