Space in LA: Exploring the Lasting Legacy

With the future of our planet possibly being, well, off the planet, the need for a new generation of explorers has never been greater. In a special LAist Studios live event, M.G.

And we want to hear your space stories! Step into a recording booth in the Mohn Broadcast Center to tell us your L.A. space experience. Was your mom a rocket scientist? Family member an engineer at Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL)? Do you still harbor a fascination with rockets that started when you were a kid? Tell us all about it at the event.
