Help fund a tour of the Intergalactic Travel Bureau

The Intergalactic Travel Bureau is a cool combination of science education outreach and performance art that gives people a chance to interact with real scientists. All you have to do is just walk into an ITB office and start asking questions about space, planetary travel, and astrophysics. The ITB has set up shop before in New York and London. Now they're trying to raise money to take the show on a larger tour of the US and UK. When you donate you get a chance to help decide where the tour will go and you can earn some great rewards, including custom, vintage-travel inspired postcards. There's more details and a video on Kickstarter.

  1. Cool!

    Love the posters, and often I have questions about space related items but don't have access to an astrophysicist. Plus art!

    Win win win!

    I'm in, too. I'm part of the San Jose Astronomical Association (an astronomy club in SJ, Calif), and our mission is to bring astronomy and science to the masses. And boy, this is one cool way of doing that! I'm also trying to promote guerrilla astronomy, setting up scopes on the sidewalk in busy areas of town. Have YOU ever seen Saturn through a telescope? How about the moon? Neither have most people, and we're trying to change that.

    Guerrilla science is just a superset of what we're doing. Win win, yes yes!
