The Solar System

John Andrews, a mechanical engineer who worked 21 years for Bell Labs in Murray Hill and the past 12 years for Integrated Photonics, Inc., will present stunning astrophotos from space probes, land-based telescopes and the orbiting Hubble Space Telescope. We will start from the sun and visit all the planets in our solar system in which Earth is a mere dust mote circling in the narrow habitable zone around our star. Our visit to each of the other planets will reveal the harsh reality of being too close or too far from the sun. Free. Advance sign-up is requested. Click here to register.
