2:00 PMGuest Astronomer Ben Burress

"Moon: After 50 Years of Exploration, Still Full of Surprises"

Celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the Moon Landing with our guest astronomer Ben Burress from the Chabot Space and Science Center.


"We have always looked to the Moon with a sense of awe, curiosity, and wonder. And, after five decades of exploration by dozens of space missions--and twenty-three actual landings (or deliberate crash landings)--Earth's sister world has lost none of its appeal to our sense of adventure, our quest for scientific understanding, and the enduring human trait of loving a good mystery. Through the lens of spacecraft like NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, we are seeing details of the Moon's surface that are changing our older ideas and assumptions that it is merely a dry and airless rock in space." - Ben Burress


If you want to know more, join us for his discussion on modern observations and discoveries about the Moon. The event is free and no registration is required.
