Celebrating the anniversary of the first man in space, Yuri Gagarin!
Loretta and crew did a great job as always. Dr. Mae Jemison put on an inspired speech for the VIP's, discussion space and spaceflight from multiple angles most never consider. Lots more little nice touches every year-- they actually had food this year, a starfield for the RS-25 display, the usual photo booth with alien/sci-fi props, even a Dalek! And as previously announced, they did a mini-re-enactment of the Star Wars: A New Hope throne room scene, complete with R2-D2!
Lord Darth Vader and a few stormtroopers even made an appearance. With Star Wars Celebration the following weekend in Anaheim, the timing of both events was mutually beneficial. *grins*
Brilliantly executed-- t'was an awesome night!
