NEW!  The Great Planet Adventures

Show Description

Begins Spring Semester

In the future we may colonize other planets to establish science outposts and mine resources. What would the colonists do for fun? Experience zip lining on scorched Mercury, bungee jumping into outer space from an asteroid, ballooning in the atmosphere of Venus, hang gliding over the hydrocarbon lakes of Titan, driving a monster truck along a lunar crater wall, and rappelling into the Valles Marineris. Winter sports go extreme when we spelunk in an ice cave on Europa, jet-pack in geyser spray on Triton, and snowmobile on Pluto. We can experience these off-world adventures now while we wait for the future to arrive. A brief tour of the current seasonal night sky precedes this program.
