If you can’t make it out this week, the spacecraft plans on being there forever.

The 13th annual Bethesda Literary Festival is held this weekend, too. Celebrated authors, journalists, and poets will discuss their words. The guest list includes Thomas Friedman of The New York Times, biographer Walter Isaacson, and Goosebump-giver R.L. Stine.

Tonight, it’s The Green Wave, a partly-animated film that recalls the events of Iran’s 2009 election protests with video footage, interviews, and social media.
