Same Space Time, Different Space Channel – Yes, Artemis 1 is headed back to the hanger to wait for another turn on the launch pad at some later date. So, rats about that. But we still want to celebrate Space Exploration, and there’s so much to celebrate! On October 3, 12:30 – 2:30 pm we will have a Space Lunch if not a Space Launch (if all goes well… at 12:45 pm SpaceX is launching Dragon-5 with people on board). Join us at the Latham Library with Host Solar System Ambassador for NASA, Cynthia Shelton.
Special guest Tara Tomlinson is a planetary scientist working with NASA at Dartmouth, using data from spacecraft to study the surfaces of places like the moon, Mars, Europa, and Pluto. Watch the launch – or just have lunch – with other space exploration enthusiasts downstairs on the big screen at Latham Library. Either way there will be Free NASA shwag and bagels. We can discuss what will happen with Artemis 1, or what did happen with DART (the asteroid basher set for collision on MONDAY at 7:14 pm – today).Large Cassini retro-posters free while supplies last. One per person.
