Special Bulletin - Public Astronomy Lecture Series

Special Bulletin
Fall 2013

Hello Friends,

 

This is a special newsletter bulletin. The Center for Earth & Space Science Education will host the Fall 2013 Public Astronomy Lecture Series this Saturday, October 5th, 2013 beginning at 7pm.

 

The Public Astronomy Lecture Series (PALS) began in 2004 and continues today as part of the science and education outreach of the Center for Earth & Space Science Education at Tyler Junior College. Lectures and demonstrations are presented throughout the semester by academic experts and scholars who speak about timely and interesting topics related to science, education, and public outreach. The topics are entertaining and presented to the general public. Everyone is invited. The cost is $5 per person.

 

What: Public Astronomy Lecture Series for the Fall 2013 Semester

 

Speaker: Justin Parish is the assistant director of the Center for Earth & Space Science Education at Tyler Junior College. He holds a M.S. degree in Physics & Astronomy from Stephen F. Austin State University. His field of expertise is astronomical data collection techniques for binary star systems.

 

Topic: "The Universe in a Meter." From quarks to quasars, we will take a trip through the largest, smallest, tiniest, infinitesimal, minute, galactic, and intergalactic objects in the Universe. We will begin at the subatomic level moving quickly all the way to large-scale structures. Through this journey, our only guide and point of reference will be a single unite of measure: 3.3 human feet placed end to end - or one meter.

 

When: Saturday, October 5th, 2013, beginning at 7:00pm.
