Twas’ the evening of Mars, as experts discussed any space exploratory clout, as Hollywood and Science met, at the SoHo House.
The Science & Entertainment Exchange met at the beautiful SoHo House in West Hollywood, for a wonderfully affable evening of Science and conversation.
An elegant room of acclaimed Scientists and Hollywood’s most elite attended the SoHo House event held above the twinkling City of Stars. Yet, as the night drew on another luminous region was explored; Space.
A dream visit to Mars is no longer Science-fiction. According to Phil Plait, Author and Astronomer, as well as Jennifer Trosper, JPL’s Mars Mission Manager, the journey to our neighboring planet is more like “Science-reality”.
The beautiful loft area was filled with creators of Blockbusters that focused on space exploration, and the final frontier. However, few have been closer to landing on another planet than speaker Jennifer Trosper.
Jennifer Trosper provided such vivid detail of the Red Planet; it seemed as if she visited regularly. In short, she has visited the planet more than most families have their grandparents. The trip is a bit trickier than hopping over a river and through the woods, but has been accomplished by the world’s most ambitious space engineers.
The six-month long trip and one-way ticket intrigued the guests more than repelled. Before Jennifer could further elaborate interest peaked for instruction on where to acquire such a privilege. That intrigue did slightly derail as Jennifer and Phil explained the terraforming that would need to occur first. Her and Phil Plait, the self-proclaimed “Bad Astronomer,” tag teamed an onslaught of questions from the room.
Phil and Jennifer were a formidable duo as they applied current culture to the aspects of the future of space exploration. Phil’s outlook on the importance of surpassing our imaginative plateaus, spoke to an audience constantly encouraged to expand the imagination of the masses.
The evening concluded with a lively Q&A from some of Hollywood’s biggest stars. Laughs, cheers, and projected dates for humanity’s arrival to Mars filled the animated room.
Once again The Science and Entertainment Exchange excited the minds of those entrusted to inspire minds. A marvelous mixture of two, not so distant, worlds combined for a smashing evening above the beautiful Los Angeles skyline.
In case you were wondering, is a settlement of Mars for this generation too far out of sight? Guess you’ll have to attend an exquisite Science & Entertainment Exchange evening, on another breathtaking SoHo House night.
