If you're looking for a way to stay cool this weekend AND celebrate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, the New York Hall of Science has you covered. NYSCI is throwing Apollo, A Party on Saturday night (July 20th), and there's TONS of indoor activities to do. Above and Beyond is a flight simulator that includes augmented reality: just thinking about that makes me want to watch Space Camp. You can observe the sun and stars using astronomical equipment, or watch a 125-lb robot in action. There's also Solar Cat, a giant cat-shaped solar panel!! Ameowzing. Sorry. They've also promised space-themed music, which I can only assume will include this song:
