Free Friday: Go intergalactic at the Air and Space Museum

Don’t feel like spending the money to see Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway get super spacey? The Smithsonian’s Air and Space Museum has a solution for you.

Interstellar, the latest sci-fi film about our life on Earth coming to an end, has a free exhibit at the Air and Space Museum until Nov. 20. If you have dreams of becoming an astronaut, you can get up close with the actual spacecraft built for the film.

Additionally, the Udvar Hazy Center in Chantilly, Va. will also be creating an Oculus Rift DK2. Vox has no idea what this means (Disclosure: Vox has not actually seen the film yet), but apparently it is a simulation that actually gives people the chance to tour the Spacecraft from the film and go through a typical astronaut’s zero-gravity experience.

If you’re looking to splurge and see the movie, the Lockheed Martin Imax Theatre will be showing the film for $15, which is actually cheaper than the AMC Loews Georgetown Theater.

Vox hopes you have entirely extraterrestrial experiences this weekend. May your feet not be firmly on the ground.

  1. uhhh I’m pretty sure most Georgetown students aren’t going to be able to make it out to Chantilly. It’s 45 minutes away by car.
