NYC Ferry is taking you to see Astronaut Training, Caveats to local comedy shows on the Lower East Side. Get to Caveat with NYC Ferry’s Lower East Side (LES) route to Corlears Hook.

Join hosts Corinne Caputo (author of How To Success) and Loren Grush (Space Reporter at The Verge) as they put REAL scientists and REAL comedians through the rigorous tests of Astronaut Training to see who will “win” a “trip to Mars.” Our challenges simulate those actually done by astronauts-in-training as if they were made by a gazillionaire with too much time on their hands. Only one flight crew can emerge: come witness who will become the next great American heroes!


Molly Gaebe (UCB) and Mehmet Alpaslan (NYU, astrophysicist)
Milly Tamarez (UCB, Flexx) and Jackie Faherty (AMNH, exoplanet expert)
