The Department of Chemistry and Physics welcomes students, faculty, staff and alumni to “Look Up at Night, Augusta” (LUNA) on Thursday, Nov. 19 at 7 p.m. in Science Hall, room W1002.
Guest speaker Dr. Nathan Yanasak, assistant professor in the Department of Radiology, will present a lecture titled “What We Know about Pluto.”
As a postdoctoral researcher at the California Institute of Technology, Yanasak worked extensively with NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, specializing in cosmic-ray propagation and composition.
Following Yanasak’s lecture, the Department of Chemistry and Physics will host night sky observations using GRU’s telescopes if weather permits.
The purpose of LUNA is to connect the community with the night sky and to inform the general public about the science behind astronomical objects.
The event is free and open to the public, and the content is accessible and easily understood for all audiences.
