SpaceX at Science Exchange: Dragons and Falcons and Grasshoppers, oh my!

Chris White answering questions at Science Exchange. Last Thursday Chris White, Director of Business Development at SpaceX, came by the new Science Exchange office to quiz us on SpaceX trivia, give out some goodies, and, in general, blow our minds with all things SpaceX. We had a tremendous turnout and were thrilled that people were as excited to talk to Chris as we were.

The evening began with some trivia questions easy and hard, like “What year was SpaceX founded?” FYI it was founded in 2002. Next, we listened to some Johnny Cash, admired the Grasshopper “Ring of Fire,” and witnessed the majesty of SpaceX spacecraft in some short but sweet videos. Finally, Chris jumped into a candid and informative overview of SpaceX, DragonLab, and their revolutionary approach to commercialized microgravity experiments. We learned some about what makes SpaceX tick, how DragonLab is empowering scientists globally to do their own microgravity experiments, and what it’s like to sit down with Elon Musk.

All in all, we couldn’t have asked for a better night filled with insightful discussions, engaging info, and laughs all around. Thank you to Chris White and the team at SpaceX for making it happen!
