* Experience The Experience Of An Illegal Space Race
Machine Project guest artists, monochrome from Austria, will place the planets true to scale (sun, 4 meters in diameter, Pluto, one centimeter in diameter, about 20 miles away) throughout the LA cityscape. Then they will conduct a car race.
From there, as their press materials state, "the team that makes it through 'LA space' fastest wins the interplanetary trophy. In conclusion, of course, the speeds of the cars will be calculated, for example, how much faster than light they were. Planetary scientists will be on hand as guests to comment on the events.
