Attention space enthusiasts!

If you've ever dreamt of taking a photo with an astronaut (I know I have), this weekend might be your chance.

Taking place at the JW Marriott Tucson Starr Pass Resort & Spa, Spacefest V will provide an opportunity for space lovers to chat with astronauts, take photos with them, listen to some really interesting talks and see some space inspired artwork.

Astronauts will include five moon-walkers, Apollo astronauts, space shuttle astronauts and mission controllers.

Speakers will include Professor Brian Cox, author, lecturer, physicist and rockstar, Dr. Carolyn Porco, team-leader of Cassini-Saturn's imaging, among many others.

Of course, we can't forget the astronauts, who will be conveniently sitting in booths with signs identifying them and their missions.

The art show looks pretty promising too:

The main event will take place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily throughout Memorial Day weekend (May 24-27).
General admission prices are $20 daily, or $50 for all four days.

If you really love space, special tickets can be purchased that include banquets, luncheons, all-day talks passes and VIP benefits.
