The American Museum of Natural History intends to open an ambitious new exhibition called Beyond Planet Earth; the showcase will call on all the institute's resources in order to exhaustively answer the big questions surrounding outer space. Oh, and you're invited!

Should you happen to be in New York City on the 4th of October, the opportunity is almost too difficult to miss. Vimeo, the popular video hosting website, is offering users the chance to visit the groundbreaking exhibit early, receive a private tour of the Hayden Planetarium and talk one-on-one with museum researchers. This affiliation between the Museum of Natural History and Vimeo is intended to help stimulate the once-imaginative public with tough questions and fascinating ideas. In order to take part in Beyond Planet Earth, simply post a video of yourself inventing new methods for space travel -- tickets are being rewarded on a 'first come' basis. My money's on quantum teleportation!
