Event Details

Please join us on the evening of Friday, April 30th, 2010 for the X PRIZE Foundation’s first ever TweetUp!  For the first time, we are holding an open house to give us a chance to interact directly with our online fans and supporters. 

The event will feature brief, Ignite-style presentations on the Foundation’s three ongoing prizes—the Archon Genomics X PRIZE, the Google Lunar X PRIZE, and the Progressive Insurance Automotive X PRIZE —as well as our on-going work developing new prizes in a variety of fields. Additionally, we’ll be joined by a very special guest; Anousheh Ansari, the first female private space explorer and a trustee of the X PRIZE Foundation, will join us for a reading and signing or her new memoirMy Dream of Stars, co-authored by Homer Hickham (Rocket Boys). At this event, Anousheh will discuss her new memoir and the pursuit of her goal to travel to space. 

The event will take place at the X PRIZE Foundation’s headquarters in Playa Vista, CA from 6pm – 8pm on Friday, April 30th. Light appetizers and refreshments will be provided. Cameras, tweeting, and live-blogging of the event are, of course, welcomed. This event is open to any and all of our fans, but space will be limited; so be sure to register early to ensure admission to the event. Further details, including directions and parking instructions, will be provided to our confirmed guests. We look forward to seeing you soon!
