We want to remind Browncoats and space enthusiasts in the Western Pennsylvania area that they are invited to join us for “21-and-Over Rocket Science Night” at the Carnegie Science Center on Pittsburgh’s North Shore tomorrow evening (Friday, January 15) from 6-10pm.
The #SpaceXSerenityCrew will have a table set up at Rocket Science Night, where we’ll be gathering petition signatures asking SpaceX to announce the official name of its first Crew Dragon as Serenity at San Diego Comic-Con this July. We’ll also have form letters, postcards and “Leaf on the Wind” sheets that you can send to SpaceX founder and CEO Elon Musk and president Gwynne Shotwell to let them know you think Serenity would be the shiniest name in the ‘verse for their first manned Dragon capsule.
And while we’re there, we’ll be all manner of excited to talk with Rocket Science Night attendees about SpaceX, their recent vertical recovery of a Falcon 9 first-stage booster rocket, their upcoming launch of the Jason-3 satellite from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California on Sunday, or any other aspects of Commercial Spaceflight.
So come on out and join us for an evening of fun with rocket science, and don’t forget to use the hashtag #SpaceXSerenityCrew all weekend long on social media, especially during SpaceX’s Jason-3 launch, which you’ll be able to watch live on NASA TV starting at 1:30pm, EST this Sunday, January 17.
We hope to see you tomorrow. Peace, love and rockets…
