Hi everyone,July Lates at the Science Museum
is on Wednesday evening and this month we're blasting off into space, to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing.
We've got an intergalactic disco, inflatable planetarium, curator tours of our all-new space gallery Cosmos and Culture
, astronaut training from Punk Science
and much more. And last, but definitely not least, an incredibly special event that you can't miss, as Sy Liebergot
, the man who was manning the desk when Houston heard there was "a problem", talks through the real story from NASA mission control.
The evening's full programme is available now
and as usual Lates is free entry.
I will be around throughout the evening, Twittering
and chatting with visitors, so please come and say hello - I'll be the tall bloke with the yellow Science Museum badge saying "Peer" on it. Lates isn't a formal Meetup event as I do get called away to work (apologies in advance), however if you want to meet before hitting the galleries to form a group, meet me next to the cafe entrance on the ground floor (to the right of the main box office) at around 7.15pm. Or, on the other hand, you don't need to meet us at all if you fancy just wandering the floors!
However, don't forget that Sy Liebergot's talk starts at 7.45pm in our IMAX cinema so be there promptly - I'm flagging this now as it's going to be a very popular event!
Hope to see you next Wednesday; if you have any questions send me an email and I'll be happy to help.

PS. If you want to film your visit, we've got Flip digital video recorders that Meetup members can borrow!
