This is how grown-ups do Orlando Science Center when it’s reserved strictly for adults at Science Night Live!

In partnership with the Astronaut Scholarship Fund, guests were able to enjoy presentations from former NASA astronaut Robert L. Crippen and Lockheed Martin’s Jules Schneider, the project manager for NASA’s new human exploration spacecraft. In addition, visitors rocked out to the sounds of live band Beemo; experienced a laser light show in the Dr. Phillips CineDome; discovered the science of sports in “Sportsology”; viewed stars and planets from the Crosby Observatory; conducted lab experiments in Dr. Dare’s Laboratory; delighted in food and adult beverages courtesy of Vital Flair; and so much more!

Join us for the next Science Night Live February 21, 2015!
