Free Public Lecture on Astronomy from the Stratosphere

Wednesday, Mar 6, 2013 7:00p

Dr. Dana Backman will give an illustrated, non-technical talk on NASA's SOFIA project -- an airplane in which a large hole has been cut to install a telescope that (at 40,000 feet) examines heat rays coming from the universe. This remarkable instrument is already making discoveries about the birth of stars, the building blocks of life out there, and giant black holes in space.

Please arrive early to find parking. Having exact change or bills for the $3 parking fee helps.
