A Cosmic Exploration: Astrophysics and Space Technology

Presented with Nowadays


Join us for a unique astronomy Olio where Michael Hamburg will help us explore the cosmos using a telescope and open the floor to any and all questions you have about outer space.

This Olio will also include a brief report on the latest discoveries and developments from astrophysics and space technology. We will hear the most up to date news about the Earth, our Solar System, worlds around other stars, and beyond. We will also look at the technologies that open the windows to these discoveries. 

In addition, we will examine what is happening with the various projects hoping to put people in space. Following will be an opportunity to ask any questions that you want.




Location: Nowadays

56-06 Cooper Ave, Ridgewood, NY 11385

Trees, ping pong, checkers, grass to lie in, fresh air, and the occasional passing freight train. Good food for meat eaters, veggies and vegans. Beer, sangria, fancy sodas and wine. Classes with Think Olio, a lovely Sunday afternoon dance, moonlit movies and regular ping pong tourneys. Dog friendly.
