What You'll Get

Some scientists and conspiracy theorists have long credited aliens as being responsible for some of the earth's most awe-inspiring structures, such as the pyramids, Stonehenge, and the KFC Double Down sandwich. Today's Groupon tackles similar intergalactic fact and fiction: for $12, you get one adult admission to "The Science of…Aliens" exhibit at the San Diego Air & Space Museum (a $24.75 value). The museum is open daily from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., with the last admission at 4 p.m.

The Science of…Aliens exhibit has crash-landed at the San Diego Air & Space Museum, offering thrilling glimpses into humanity's long-held belief in the existence of extraterrestrial life forms. The exhibit is split into four star-gazing sections, each offering different POVs on ETs. "Alien Fiction" celebrates sci-fi classics, with movie props and other items detailing our fascination with silver-screen space-dwellers and its connection to ancient mythology, while "Alien Science" covers alien-looking creatures living on planet Earth, such as deep-sea fish and Lady Gaga. Explore two fictional but scientifically credible alien planets—Aurelia and Blue Moon—in the "Alien Worlds" section of the exhibit, or pen a personal love note or jury summons to residents of neighboring galaxies with "Alien Communication."

Since 1961, the San Diego Air & Space Museum has been dedicated to commemorating mankind's aerospace and aviation history and technological accomplishments. Admission to "The Science…of Aliens" also entitles you to explore the other exhibits and permanent collections at the museum. Feast your eyes on the X-15 canopy display, a vintage aircraft from the Cold War era, or swim through the stars with a look at the Apollo 9 command module.

The museum closes at 2 p.m. on October 23. It is also closed on Thanksgiving.
