Bionic Buzz® got to cover Yuri’s Night LA at the California Science Center. The event brings awareness and celebrate Space exploration and achievements of humanity in space with an evening full of interactive activities, curated talks, art installations, and dancing underneath the Space Shuttle Endeavour.
Special guest at it was Rod Roddenberry. He is the son of legendary Star Trek writer and producer, Gene Roddenberry.
Following in his father’s footsteps, he champions the Roddenberry legacy to a new generation through original science fiction productions, merchandise, publishing, underwater adventures and philanthropy. The Roddenberry legacy further lives on through the Roddenberry Dive Team, which was founded in 2010. Roddenberry leads the dive team in its exploration of underwater worlds and strives to inspire stewardship of the world’s oceans. A scuba diver since 1993, Roddenberry holds a Divemaster certification and has led or participated in more than 1,000 dives from exotic locations around the world. Rod did a LIVE Underwater Q&A session from the California Science Center Kelp Forest at it. Here is most of the video and we even got to ask him a question about sea turtles!
