Limited Capacity seats available

RinCon special guest, astronomer and board game designer Dante Lauretta, will investigate space exploration and board games.

Lauretta is a professor of planetary science and cosmochemistry at the University of Arizona and the leader of NASA’s OSIRIS-REx, a mission to visit asteroid Bennu, land on it, and return a sample to Earth. He also designs and creates board games combining two of his passions in life: solar system exploration and strategy gaming. His first game, XTRONAUT, captures the real-world thrill and challenges of planetary exploration and gives players a chance to develop space missions and explore the solar system. The game is based on real planetary missions and rocket science and contains elements of politics and strategy that are inspired by the real-life situations that space missions face.
