Join the Boise State University Physics Department for our First Friday Astronomy Event:
Friday, May 5th, 7:30pm in Education Building, Room 112
and Stargazing at 8:30pm in the Sci/Ed Building (if weather allows).
Dr. Catherine Neish, University of Western Ontario,
will present: “Dragonfly: A Rotorcraft Lander at Titan”.
Dr. Catherine Neish is an Associate Professor at the University of Western Ontario. Neish’s research interests focus on the geology of planetary surfaces, with a particular interest to processes related to impact cratering. “Radar represents the best way to observe the surface of planets with large opaque atmospheres, such as Venus and Saturn’s moon Titan, leading to a better understanding of their surface morphology” taken from Neish’s website.
The event is free and open to the public.
For those that cannot attend in person, the lecture will be live-streamed on Youtube at boi.st/AstroBroncosLive. Those attending the live-stream are welcome and encouraged to ask questions via chat.
After the lecture, we will stargaze in Boise State’s observatory, weather permitting.
These events are funded by your generous donations. You can donate at boi.st/AstroGive.
