Details

The Astronomy Society would like to invite the Mount Community to a Star Party with NASA. On Saturday, March 26th at 7 in Knott Auditorium, the night will begin with a talk by the deputy project manager for the Hubble Space Telescope mission at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center. Mr. Jim Jeletic will give a talk titled “NASA’s Incredible Discovery Machine: The Story of the Hubble Space Telescope”. The talk will cover the history of the telescope including the five servicing missions and highlights of its scientific discoveries.

The talk will be followed by star gazing with two NASA members on echo field and pizza in the welcome center behind Delaplaine. The Hubble Space Telescope communications team will be available in the welcome center after the talk to answer your questions, help you explore Hubble science with augmented reality, learn about the spacecraft with interactive holograms, and more.

There will be handouts of free bookmarks and Hubble Images so we will need a rough headcount of interest.
