The 2019 Las Cruces Space Festival is running April 7-13 launching with an ‘open house’ at Spaceport America. There will be opportunities to meet the teams from Virgin Galactic, watch fly-ins, drones, RC planes and small rocket launches. Events continue the rest of the week in Las Cruces with activities in the public schools and colleges, space art exhibitions ‘Our Place In Space‘ and ‘Hand Made Light‘ around town, movies at the Rio Grande Theater and 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 quiz 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. The final day of the festival will be hosted in the Plaza de Las Cruces with hands on activities for all ages, free movies and book signings on Main St.
