Join the Boise State Physics Department for a stargazing party with special guest Prof. Denise Stephens, astronomer from BYU.
Come learn about the New Horizons mission, the team, and the 20+ years it took to get this mission to Pluto. Take a closer look at Pluto, Charon, and the other 4 moons as we dive into the Kuiper Belt, and the extended mission to visit another Kuiper Belt Object.
The event takes place on Friday, Feb 3 and will start in the Multipurpose Classroom Building in room 101 at 7:30p
and then move to the top of the Brady Garage at 8:30p, where telescopes will be set up for stargazing (weather permitting).
The weather forecast for this week is not promising, so we’ll cancel the stargazing portion. The lecture will still happen, though.
