Come join Michael Hamburg of the education department at Museum of Natural History, for an informative trip through our solar system. We will be visiting the major and minor bodies that revolve around our star – the Sun. Learn about how the Sun, planets, moons, and other members of our celestial family were born and evolved. We will look at the latest discoveries as gathered by some of the most advanced and sophisticated technologies humans have created so far.
In addition, we will cast our eyes forward to examine what lies in the future for humanity’s place in the Solar System as well as a discussion of NASA's newest findings of the 7 planets discovered orbiting TRAPPIST-1.
There will be ample time for questions and answers and all levels of astronomy experience are welcome!
“The Right Stuff with afterburners. Intrepid designers and innovators risk their reputations. Gutsy test pilots risk their lives. Explorers push new boundaries of what so many once thought was impossible. —Captain Mark Kelly (USN, Ret.), NASA astronaut
