The Columbia Memorial Space Center Presents Space Expo at LBCC 2015!
The Columbia Memorial Space Center is partnering with Long Beach Comic Con for Space Expo 2015, an innovative and one-of-a-kind program that will connect comic book convention attendees directly with the world of scientific discovery. Space Expo 2015 will be held at the Long Beach Convention Center as part of Long Beach Comic Con on September 12 and 13, 2015 with panels featuring top aerospace industry notables discussing hot button scientific topics. As part of Space Expo 2015, there will be interactive exhibits featuring robotics, 3D printing, and even a spacesuit - all curated by Columbia Memorial Space Center, the prestigious CA-based learning center dedicated to bringing the wonder and excitement of science to audiences of all ages and backgrounds.

"Space, the space program and science are all a part of the same pop culture dialogue as comic books and science fiction," said Columbia Memorial Space Center President Ben Dickow. "We want to create a fandom for science that will grow and support the next wave of space explorers and scientific progress and there's no better place to do that than at a comic convention."

Panels at Space Expo 2015 at Long Beach Comic Con will include:

Sci-Fi Space vs. Reality. Andre Bormanis, the director of scientific research for Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey and the science consultant for Star Trek shows, discusses the age­old topic of just how much Science Fiction is based on actual Science.

Planning a Martian Roadtrip with Engineers from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory . What does it take to plan a 'road trip' on Mars? Experts will discuss driving from Acidalia Planitia to Schiaparelli crater, as astronaut Mark Watney does in the book The Martian .

The Dawn Mission. Engineers from NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory will analyze the Mars Dawn mission, discuss Ceres, the dwarf planet and the asteroid Vesta.

New Horizons and Pluto. Discovered in 1930, Pluto remained a tiny burry point of light until the arrival of the New Horizons spacecraft. With this history making flyby of this dwarf planet and its moons, humans have for the first time seen their surfaces and detected their tenuous atmospheres. After a short history of Pluto observations, the latest information from this mission will be presented.

"Crazy Engineering." From supersonic parachutes to electric propulsion, the engineers at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory are coming up with innovative ideas to explore our solar system and beyond. This panel will discuss current and next generation space missions, and the technology that makes it all possible. It only looks crazy, but it's result of reasoned engineering...Missions on the panel include: Dawn mission at Ceres, Juno mission to Jupiter, Europa mission, InSight and Mars Cube One (MarCO). Based on JPL's web series Crazy Engineering.

"We're incredibly excited about bringing the worlds of comics and space together in one fantastic event," said Martha Donato, Long Beach Comic Con Executive Director and Co-Founder. "A ticket to Long Beach Comic Con admits fans to over 100 panels, including both the Space Expo programming and a wide array of pop culture programming focused on comics, video games, animation, cosplay and collectibles."

    Then really, take it outside. Please be courteous and no cell phone usage when you are at panels, events or in programming rooms.

    To complete my costume, I carry a large battle-axe that I hone to razor sharpness every day. It's cool for me to bring that, right?

    "LBCC'14 was a blast! You guys do such a terrific job of putting on a convention. This is my 4th LBCC and as long as you keep doing what you're doing, I'll keep coming back. Everyone there is super friendly and it's so easy and well organized, which makes it a lot of fun. My favorite thing to do is meet comic book creators, get signatures and get sketches in artist alley. I love that you have well established names as well as lots of fresh talent to discover. Seriously, from top to bottom, you all do a great job with the show. Kudos to everyone on your staff!"
    - Chris Kiefer

    "My husband and I really love attending your convention. We have been attending since the first Long Beach Comic Con and it has become our favorite comic book convention. Since we are from San Diego, we take a "mini vacation" in Long Beach. We are super excited for this year's event. You have created a really Awesome comic convention!"
    - Rachel Fogg-Lara & Ramon Lara

    "I had the opportunity this last weekend to walk the Long Beach Comic Con. The past 3 years I have attended as a budding young (well old) artist and enjoyed my time in the Artist Alley. From the veteran creators of the comic industry to the new faces looking to tell their own stories, there is an overall drive of creativity, energy and passion for the comic medium. The diversity of styles, content, ages and viewpoints just show how much people love comics."
    - Chris Waterman for Bleeding

    "Long Beach Comic Con treated the pros and the fans to a real treat. I especially enjoyed the relaxed surroundings and actually got to spend some time with some real special people as well. This is the kind of show we will keep coming back to year after year. congrats to everyone that made it happen."
    - Jimmy Palmiotti

    "Intimate enough to mingle with the artists, yet big enough to inspire awe.... the LB Comic Con started something that will hopefully continue to grow and inspire year after year!"
    - Jim Lujan

    "It was a pleasure to attend the Long Beach Comic Convention. What I liked best was how easy it was to get to the convention. The best part of this comic convention was it was about comics!!! The main reason I attended was to browse Artists Alley. I saw all my favorites and noticed a few new ones. I think the venue was perfect. Downtown Long Beach offers a beautiful view to go along with the shopping center around it. Thanks for a great time and I can't wait to attend next year, and many more to come."
    - Jarrod Kawashima, Geoffrey's Comics

    "A Comic Book Convention with more comic books on the vendor floor than anything else! How refreshing! I loved that I could speak with comic book artists without feeling overwhelmed by humongous crowds."
    - Rachel Bieber, City of Torrance Reference Librarian

    "You could not have asked for a better comic con, than the Long Beach Comic Con. It being the first year of the show, we (Fiction House Mafia) had no idea what to expect. We had heard the buzz of guests that would appear. J. Scott Campbell, Jeph Loeb, Jim Lee- to name a few. One of the best things about the show is that it was well rounded. Where some of the shows you don't really get the chance to converse with your favorite creators and they managed to pull it off. It was awesome!!! If you're an independent creator take into consideration this convention, because the focus that they put on their booths, artist alley tables, is really second to none. We had an artist alley table and sold out of every book we took."
    - Albert Morales (Artist, El Mystico), Fiction House Mafia

    "I had such a blast at Long Beach Comic Con! There was a wide variety of things to see and do and a great lineup of guests. As a creator it was a great chance to network with other creators but I also had fun attending the show as a fan!"
    - Brendan Creecy
