Event description

Description

In 2019, the award was presented to Dr. “Buzz” Aldrin, member of the Apollo mission to the Moon, and longtime activist for the human exploration and settlement of space. The previous year, we honoured Jeff Bezos and his team at Blue Origin on developing space infrastructure, with past winners including: Etienne Schneider, the Deputy Prime Minister of Luxembourg for his support of space resource development, including a $200 million investment fund, and the first non-US space resource national policy; and Dr. Pete Worden of the Breakthrough Prize Foundation for his lifelong work on space projects, ranging from one of the first missions to find water on the Moon to the DC-X re–usable rocket and many others.

It’s 2120. You’re invited to a formal affair at a space colony on the Moon or Mars. What on Earth (or space) will you wear? The first three Space Cowboy Balls were a rousing success. The fourth edition will be a must-attend event of both the space and Austin celebrity year.

Space has been too boring for too long. We are committed to both the technology and culture of tomorrow. From tux to tech, all are welcome to our celebration of the future. It’s a little like a second Halloween, this time for grown ups, space geeks and cos play gamers. From the Expanse to Serenity, Star Wars to Star Trek, and all the best science fiction futures in between, come join us on a micro-Burning Man rocket ride. We’ll give out some awards, eat some great barbeque and then we Party!
