At this year's SXSW Interactive Festival, NASA will be giving everyone the chance to feel a little bit closer to far-off outer space. Calling to all engineers, technicians researchers and others who have a love of space, the Experience NASA event will include info on how citizens can collaborate with NASA on science projects, get involved in challenges, speak with astronauts like Reid Wiseman (who just returned from a six-month flight on the ISS) and find out more about how this space center is improving air travel.

One of the most exciting parts of the event is a display that shows off NASA’s James Webb Space Telescope at the SXSW Gaming Expo. This station has touchscreens, visualizations and video demonstrating how NASA continues to innovate in the realm of space travel.
