An astronomical amount of the space pods and costumes were crafted from recycled materials. One pod was filled with papier-mache moon rocks that emitted an unearthly glow at night. There was even an astronaut in attendance, dressed the part with metallic ductwork covering his arms and legs. However, the green highlight of the event was that many of the pods and booths were either solar or bike-powered. In fact, a late night dance party in the fair’s geodesic dome was largely powered by bicycles in a nearby space pod.

Now that the fair has passed, Wooly is looking for permanent homes for the 21 pods. And yes – the homes will be on earth.
