Science@Sunset and into the stars

August 1, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm ACST

into the stars

As the sun sets, join Inspired NT for a conversation with visiting scientists from NASA Jet Propulsion Lab (JPL) in the Mal Nairn Auditorium at Charles Darwin University Casuarina Campus.

Just before this year’s National Science Week, NASA JPL scientists will be touching down in the Territory!

Speakers include Deb Brice who has been a Marine Science educator for more than 25 years and has worked with NASA JPL, NOAA and the National Science Foundation (to name a few) to enlighten us on Science exploration in extreme environments: At sea and in space… what should you bring?

Rachel Zimmerman Brachman has worked at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory and is currently outreach lead for Radioisotope Power Systems (the technology that allows NASA’s spacecraft to explore outer planets in our solar system) to talk on What it’s like to be an astronaut?

After the conclusion of the talks, everyone is invited to move onto the lawns of the Charles Darwin University to listen to a star gazing talk by Geoff Carr. This will be the first opportunity the visiting scientists have to observe the southern night sky.

BYO chairs, mats and telescopes (if you wish) for the lawn session.
