We also participate in events at public libraries, camps, and other community venues.

CESS: Exploring Distant Worlds

Thursday, February 17, 7:00 p.m. (CST)

Tune in to the third edition in our 2021-2022 Cosmic Explorations Speaker Series focused on the James Webb Space Telescope. The JWST will gather fundamental new data about the characteristics of planets orbiting stars far beyond our solar system. We hope you’ll join us for a discussion of the diverse characteristics of exoplanets, the tools and techniques used to find them, and the future of studying these faraway worlds.
