The 2019 Las Cruces Space Festival is running April 7-13. It will launch with an ‘open house’ at Spaceport America with opportunities to meet the teams from Virgin Galactic, watch fly-ins, drones, RC planes and small rocket launches. Events continue in Las Cruces with activities in the public schools and colleges, space art exhibits around town, free movies at the Rio Grande Theater and free missions at the Challenger Center from April 8. There will be guest speakers from Space industries throughout the week. We will be hosting a space ‘pitch’ competition on Wednesday April 10 and a showcase of space companies on April 11 with workshops on applying for space industry jobs and Q and A’s with industry experts. On Yuri’s night there will be stargazing events in the Organ Mountains and at White Sands National Monuments and a party on Main St with live link-ups to other celebrations. We will also feature an except from the play ‘Yuri’ by Larissa Lury.
