COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (Jan. 11, 2016) – Young adults are invited to the Space Foundation Discovery Center in Colorado Springs on Friday, Jan. 15, from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. for a new event – the 21+ Space Mixer. Themed monthly events, Space Mixers are adults-only evenings of space and science interactive learning and fun.

The theme for this first mixer is “The Science of Extreme Sports.”  Honor your New Year’s resolution to get in shape and learn how science can help you meet your goals, while meeting new people.

Mountain biking, skateboarding, snowboarding, Ironman triathlons and obstacle course racing push the limits of human endurance, and science is working hard to keep us safe, healthy and extreme. This event will share the ways that science can help us push the limit of what humans can do.

The guest presenter on Jan. 15 will be April Dee, obstacle course racer, Spartan Pro Team. 

The admission cost is $20 and includes a drink voucher for soda, beer or wine, light bites, admission to the Discovery Center and the Mixer program. A cash bar will also be available. This is a 21 years and older only event.
