This weekend I’ll be in Tucson, Ariz., for Spacefest V, a fantastic convention featuring scientists, astronauts, and space artists. This will be the fourth time I’ll have attended, and it’s been great every time. If you’re a space enthusiast and in the area, you really should come.

Speakers include Carolyn Porco, Brian Cox, Emily Lakdawalla, Meteorite Man Geoff Notkin, and a whole lot more. Even me! A lot of Apollo astronauts will be there, as well as other space travelers and scientists.

Sorry about the short notice here, but if you can, please come. I always wind up leaving more energized and excited about space than when I arrived. What more can a science evangelizer ask for?
