SOLD OUT – Members Only: Eyes on the Universe
July 18, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm$30
Since the beginning of the 20th century, Southern California – particularly Pasadena – has been world-renowned in astronomy, cosmology, and astrophysics. The Carnegie Observatories have been at the forefront in each of these fields since its founding in 1904 by George Ellery Hale. For the past 40 years, most of the research has taken place at the Observatories’ large telescope facilities in northern Chile. Dr. John Mulchaey, director of the Observatories, will describe many of the fascinating discoveries and talk about today’s “golden age” of astronomy and the promises it holds for decoding the mysteries of the Universe. This lecture will be held on the Carnegie Observatories campus, which includes the original 1912 office building designed by Myron Hunt.
Program begins at 6:00 pm. All At Home programs take place at least in part outdoors. In case of rain, please consider your reservation a donation. Please note At Home events include walking and steps. Please no high heels.
