Avengers Station Party Invite
All Photos By Gail Except Image Above and Where Noted

Nobody throws a party quite like the Discovery Center in Times Square, but they out did themselves this past Thursday as a crowd of 700 invited guests gathered for the opening night launch of Discovery’s newest state-of-the-art exhibit Marvel’s AVENGERS S.T.A.T.I.O.N. – which is a must see attraction for Marvel Comics fans.

It was fun to get a preview of the exhibit in a setting that wasn’t rushed and allowed us space to take decent photos. I’d also like to give a shout out to whoever catered the event, as the food – which included Lobster Brioche, Shrimp Toasts, Mini Big Macs, Chicken Quesadillas and Chocolate Mini Cupcakes (courtesy of Georgetown Cupcake) was also among the best party food I’ve ever had. And now, on to the exhibit!

Once inside, visitors have open access to a vast array of intelligence files, classified studies and experiments that explores the history and scientific origins of Marvel’s The Avengers. Visitors will also be given unprecedented access to some of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s most highly guarded artifacts such as Captain America’s Birth Pod, the Tesseract Portal Device, Loki’s Scepter, a hermetically sealed Chitauri and more, recovered after the Battle of New York.

Memorabilia Case

NASA, the Science & Entertainment Exchange (a program of the National Academy of Sciences), Neuroverse, and Thwacke are all collaborating on the Marvel’s Avengers S.T.A.T.I.O.N. Exhibition visitors will get the chance to map out the stars to find Asgard (where Thor lives!), learn to operate Iron Man’s suit, witness the neurological effects of Bruce Banner’s transformation into the Hulk, and physically test themselves against Captain America.

Happy Birthday, Rick Wakeman!

Rick Wakeman, enigmatic and Arthurian keyboard player for Yes, was born on this day, May 18th, in 1949. Favorite massively overwrought Wakeman-era keyboard riff from a song by Yes: the climax to “Heart of The Sunrise.” Wakeman also appeared as Thor in the 1975 Ken Russell-directed Film, Lisztomania. Happy Birthday, Rick!
