Description

Become the first human ever to visit other galaxies by running millions of light years in what feels like 5 kilometers!

You’ve volunteered for the human trials of an intergalactic device that’s powered by your feet and defies the laws of physics. You will set out on a journey of discovery, meeting real galaxies in the cosmos and learning what makes them unique. If the technology holds together, your 5K trip will conclude with a visit to a supermassive black hole from which there is no escape! Hooray!

Race Through Space is a fitness experience designed to not only teach you about different celestial bodies but also to give you a sense of their actual distance, where 5 kilometers becomes proportional to nearly 55 million light years. The journey begins in the Milky Way, which is more than a tasty candy bar, but is also our home galaxy. You’ll run through various galaxies with names like Sombrero, Needle, Black Eye, and Whirlpool, culminating in a visit to the first black hole that has ever been photographed by humans, the supermassive black hole at the center of a galaxy called M87.

This narrated audio adventure is designed to EDUTAIN with the option to listen to your own music between galactic stops as well as display actual images of the various heavenly bodies you pass. Brought to you by the (fake) SpaceNEXT Industries with help from (not fake) Science ATL, we are excited to transform a humdrum 5K into an all-out sciencey fun time! Even if you’re not a runner, we DARE you to download Race Through Space and walk it, bike it, ironic unicycle it, whatever!

Science ATL is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to bringing people together through the wonder of science. The mission began in 2014 with the Atlanta Science Festival, co-founded by Emory University, Georgia Tech, and the Metro Atlanta Chamber. This annual two-week event, presented by Delta Air Lines, has brought science programming to more than 200,000 people in metro Atlanta. Additional Science ATL initiatives and events increase public interest in and appreciation of science in Atlanta with easy access points to science, technology, engineering and math throughout the year.

Spice up your daily walk

Fun way to spice up your daily covid walk! The app works very seamlessly and the timing was fine for my slow walking pace. Narration is very cute - kids and adults will get a laugh out of it. 5k felt like a fair ways, but I think you can pause it and continue over multiple walks, if desired. Funny and digestible bits of information about galaxies I’d never heard of. Highly recommend!

Awesome virtual approach to an in-person event

The annual Race through Space event was always something to look forward to. I was bummed to hear it had to be cancelled this year due to Covid-19, but Science ATL put their heads together to make this awesome app version of the experience. This is easy to use and the dialogue is hilarious. Well done!

A really fun adventure through space!

I didn’t know I could laugh so much while exercising. I learned about galaxies and I got a workout at the same time... what could be better? Highly recommend.
