Trick-or-Treat in “Scary Space”

October 30, 2014 – The Space Foundation Discovery Center is offering two days of “Scary Space” with safe indoor trick-or-treating. Come dressed in costume on October 31 or November 1 and collect treats in our El Pomar Space Gallery while learning the science behind what’s scary in space. As an extra treat for parents, children will receive half price admission on both days.

The Discovery Center is home to the Space Foundation’s collection of space artifacts. Our “Launch to the Moon” exhibit chronicles the 1959-1976 United States and Soviet Union space race, with a focus on the goal to be the first to the Moon. “Scary Space” is part of the Discovery Center’s monthly Star Days space themes and is included in the price of admission.
