For several years NSS in Second Life has partnered with the International Spaceflight Museum, a nonprofit — and now tax-exempt! — Second Life activity, to host a Yuri’s Night Dance on April 12, date of the first human launched into space, Yuri Gagarin, from the old Soviet Union (Russia) in 1961. This year SL builder Opal Lei presented ISM with a new venue, high in the sky: Saturn and its moons! Here we see the dance floor on a sliced-in-half Saturn, with tables and chairs sitting on Saturn’s Rings. Emileigh Starbrook provided music and DJ services.

World Space Week 2013 in Second Life September 17, 2013

World Space Week in Second Life, 2013 October 04 — 10, will be held this year at the Yuri’s Night Party Place built by Emileigh Starbrook high over Spaceport Bravo at the International Spaceflight Museum. ISM is actively seeking participants and activities to mark this year’s theme: Exploring Mars, Discovering Earth.

See: http://slispaceflightmuseum.org/w/index.php?title=Space_Week_2013_fashion_challenge

NSS in Second Life is a co-sponsor of the event; in particular, we are having a Martian Fashion Show, open to everyone, on Saturday, 2013 October 05, 15:00. There are two categories: Inside Habitats (i.e., under pressure, radiation-protected) and Outside Habitats (i.e., low non-breathable atmospheric pressure; no radiation within lavatubes or shielded areas, but some radiation hazard out in the open; sandy/dusty environment). Entrants need not have made their outfits themselves. There is a small prize for the “best” (by audience vote) in each category: L$500 apiece. Note that’s LINDEN Dollars, not U.S. Dollars. You can spend the money directly for Second Life goods, or there are conversions through one or more Exchanges to your local “real life” currency.

There will be a workshop for those interested conducted by Opal Lei before the event, on September 28 at 15:00. Orientation workshop to show you the runway and the tools we would use for the fashion show. We’ll also discuss what would happen in the show. You can also get feedback about the outfit you are putting together at this time.

If you just want to wear your fashion selections without formally entering the contest, that’s fine too and we love to see the creativity and variety.

We have also arranged for Emileigh Starbrook, who besides being a builder is also a DJ in Second Life, to conduct a dance after the competition, 18:00 — 20:00.

All times given are Second Life Time (SLT), which corresponds to Pacific Time (U.S.), the time at Linden Labs (creators of Second Life) corporate headquarters in San Francisco, CA USA.
