Cocktails & Cosmonauts features a wearable space suit and other exhibits from star gazing with Tacoma Astronomical Society to Virtual Reality experiences & video gaming with Capon Design. Play in the Museum exhibits with a Storm Trooper that will be visiting from the 501st Legion and make a galaxy in a bottle with Shipwreck Beads while listening to DJ Slimrock spin funk & soul vinyls.
Sip on a White Russian while learning about gravity, weightlessness, and how Tardigrades can survive the vacuum of space. Hold real moon rocks on loan from NASA and see-touch-smell a sleeping bag that was used on MIR - the Russian space station. Experience a dexterity challenge wearing space gloves, and have the opportunity to play with the polymer used in Maximum Absorbency Garments.
“Cocktails & Cosmonauts is a fun way to brush up on space & science knowledge. Incredible exhibits on loan from NASA along side telescopes from the Tacoma Astronomical Society. Explore the sci-fi side of space through comic books, video games, and virtual reality,” said Adult Swim Event Coordinator, Adrienne Testa.
