Superheroes, space adventurers and time travelers will convene at Science Museum Oklahoma during “SMO 21: Cosmic Con” from 6:30-10 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 1, an adults-only (21+) night at the museum located at 2020 Remington Place in Oklahoma City. “SMO 21: Cosmic Con” is sponsored by Tinker Federal Credit Union.

The journey through different worlds and fandoms will allow guests the chance to interact with “radioactive” arachnids, test their phaser skills, explore magnetism and electricity, manipulate metal, make cosplay masks, see “Tales of a Time Traveler” in the newly updated Kirkpatrick Planetarium, experience live science demonstrations, and much more.

A highlight of the evening will be a panel discussion with some of the region’s experts on science fiction and superheroes. Scheduled to appear include Brian Berlin, Michael Cross, Matthew L. Price and T. Steven Handy. Berlin is owner of New World Comics, host of Superhero School and organizer of New World Comic Con and Superhero School. Michael Cross is the morning voice on KOSU as well as the creator of the “Okie Geek” podcast. Matthew Price is a journalist, filmmaker and owner of Speeding Bullet Comics. Price is the co-writer and producer of the indie superhero feature film “The Posthuman Project” and the writer and producer of the film “The Grave.” T. Steven Handy is a 26-year veteran of the United States Air Force and served in Operation Desert Storm. He is currently a member of the customer training team at Boeing and is the panel’s science expert. Handy also brings his considerable expertise on most things pop culture, comics, science fiction and collectibles. The panel discussion will begin at 8:30 p.m. in the museum’s auditorium.

“For various reasons, I think a lot of us have been thinking about the worlds of superheroes and science fiction lately. From the passing of Stan Lee, to getting to know the Thirteenth Doctor, to the recent array of superhero blockbusters it seems more and more of us are exploring different fandoms. ‘SMO 21: Cosmic Con’ is an evening to pay tribute to the excitement and science of some of the biggest fandoms that have become part of our popular culture,” said Clint Stone, vice president of programs for SMO.


All guests must be age 21 or older — a valid ID is required to enter.

Tickets for SMO 21 are $21 in advance, $25 on the day of the event and are available online, over the phone and in person during regular museum hours. Tickets include all activities and access to the entire museum. Guests are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance as admission is limited.
